Focal Seizures as a First Manifestation of Nonketotic Hyperglycemia
Jong Sung Kim, M.D.
Dep. Of Neurology, Ulsan University, Asan Medical Center
I report two elderly females who developed repetitive focal seizures as their first manifestations of nonketotic hyperglycemia In the second patient, the seizures were constantly induced by active or passive movements of the involved arm. With a control of the hyperglycemia, the seizures stopped in both cases. Contrary to previous reports, the focal seizures of the second case seemed to respond to parenteral administration of phenytoin.
