Nonketotic Hyperglycemic Hemichorea-hemiballismus in a Pediatric
Patient: A case report
Nonketotic hyperglycemic hemichorea-hemiballismus (NHHH) is an
infrequent complication of diabetes mellitus, and rarely occurs in
children. We present an adolescent boy with recent diagnosis of type 1
diabetes who presented with hemichorea and brain imaging findings
consistent with NHHH. His symptoms resolved with euglycemia and valproic
acid after few weeks.
