Abstract
Oromandibular dystonia (OMD) is a focal dystonia that is characterized by repetitive or sustained spasms of the masticatory, facial, or lingual muscles. The etiology is idiopathic in most cases. A patient presenting with OMD associated with diabetic hyperglycemia is reported herein. A 74-year-old woman with a history of diabetes developed OMD. Brain MRI revealed a high signal intensity in the bilateral putamen on T1-weighted imaging. Nonketotic hyperglycemia was detected. The OMD gradually subsided with normalization of the hyperglycemia and medication with haloperidol over 10?days. Key Words: Oromandibular dystonia, Nonketotic hyperglycemia, Basal ganglia
