Sensitivity and specifity of endoscopic ultra sonography for identifying insulinoma was 70.58 and 60.6 percent and for tumor of head and body of pancreas was 83.3 and 66.6 percent

 Conclusion: Endoscopic ultra sonography is an accurate method in order to identify insulinoma the accuracy of the method depends on the tumor site and is greater in tumors that locate in the head of pancreas.
