Abstract:

Diabetes Mellitus commonly presents as polyuria, polydipsia, fatigue and polyphagia, though patients presenting with acute complications at the time of diagnosis are not uncommon. Stroke and neuropathies are the most common neurological complications of diabetes. Movement disorder like chorea and hemiballismus are very rarely associated with diabetes mellitus. Primary care physicians should be aware of these rare and complicit presentations of diabetes. We present a case of nonketotic hyperglycemic hemiballismus (NHH) with no acute abnormality seen on MRI brain.

Keywords:

Hemiballismus; Hyperglycemia; Non-ketotic hemichorea hemiballismus
