Author information

  • 1Division of Respiratory and Environmental Medicine, University of Louisville School of Medicine, KY.


The occurrence of hypoglycemia with an intrathoracic tumor was reported in 1930 independently by Doege and Potter. Since then, the presence of a nonpancreatic tumor associated with low blood sugars has often been referred to as the Doege-Potter syndrome. We report a patient with a recurrent solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura who experienced symptomatic hypoglycemia attributable to his tumor.
