A three-part story published in the e-edition of ABC Color Paraguay features Diva De Leon-Crutchlow, MD, an endocrinologist at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), and her hyperinsulism (HI) expertise.
The story describes the disease and how it is treated in the Congenital Hyperinsulinism Center at CHOP; the details of a case of focal HI treated at CHOP, narrated by the patient's mother; and Dr. De Leon-Crutchlow's basic recommendations for families with children affected by HI. The article describes the Congential Hyperinsulinism Center at CHOP as the only treatment center of its kind in the United States that is able to cure children with this disease.
