Abnormal Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Hemichorea Associated With Non-Ketotic Hyperglycemia.
Unilateral basal ganglia abnormalities on brain imaging secondary to non-ketotic hyperglycemia have been reported in the literature with different clinical manifestations. We present two cases of nonketotic hyperglycemia, acute chorea, and reversible CT and MRI findings. There seems to be a wide spectrum of pathological mechanisms underlying this entity, but none of the studies investigating the potential mechanisms of the radiological and clinical presentations have been conclusive.
