Prof. Olivier Bourron describes the spectacularly successful treatment, with rituximab, of a patient diagnosed with diabetes, widespread acanthosis nigricans (skin pigmentation) and polyarthralgia, with recurrent hypoglycaemia events, associated with an important weight loss. These results were published in The Lancet (see http://bit.ly/Bourron-2014-Lancet) and yielded significant press coverage (see for example Der Spiegel at spiegel.de/gesundheit/diagnose/ein-raetselhafter-patient-insulinresistenzsyndrom-verfaerbt-die-haut-a-999116.html).
