Abstract
Non-ketotic hyperglycemia (NKH) is often related to various types of epileptic seizures. However, aphasic seizures associated with NKH have been rarely reported. A 60-year-old diabetic woman was admitted with language disturbance. She presented recurrent motor aphasia and EEG demonstrated ictal rhythmic discharges initiated from left frontal lobe. The seizures disappeared after introduction of carbamazepine and successful control of serum glucose. She remained seizure-free for three months after discharge. We report a case of NKH, manifested by aphasic seizures. Key Words: Aphasic seizure, Non-ketotic hyperglycemia
