Abstract

Diabetic striatopathy is a rare manifestation of diabetes mellitus. The disease commonly affects individuals of Asian descent, female, and the elderly. Patients usually present with hemiballism-hemichorea caused by hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state. Prompt recognition of a hyperglycemiainduced hemiballism-hemichorea is essential because the symptoms are reversible with correction of hyperglycemia. Diagnosis is possible based on blood reports and neuroimaging findings.
