Hypoglycemia is most convincingly documented by Whipple’s triad: low plasma glucose, symptoms of hypoglycemia and relief of symptoms after treatment.1 Pseudohypoglycemia is a condition where there is an artifactually low glucose concentration and an absence of hypoglycemic symptoms. We present a case of pseudohypoglycemia where leukocytosis played a role in lowering venous glucose.
