                  </span><h3>Case Characteristics</h3> 
                  <p>A 14-year-old girl with type 1 diabetes mellitus presented with recurrent hypoglycemia. Outcome: High insulin, low C-peptide and raised insulin antibody levels documented during hypoglycemia. Plasmapheresis led to remission of hypoglycemia.</p>

                  </span><h3>Message</h3> 
                  <p>Antibodies to exogenous insulin should be considered as a cause of recurrent refractory hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetes mellitus patients.</p>
