Vasoactive intestinal peptide secreting tumour (VIPoma) is a rare type of neuroendocrine tumour (NET), primarily located in the tail of pancreas. This type of tumour presents with myriad of metabolic and electrolyte misbalances in the preoperative period, mainly due to increased vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) levels. Perioperative management of patients with VIPoma is challenging, especially when dealing with paediatric patients. The anaesthetic management of a two-year-old girl who was selected for VIPoma resection is hereby presented.
