Occipital lobe seizures and subcortical T2 and T2* hypointensity associated with nonketotic hyperglycemia: a case report.

Nonketotic hyperglycemia often causes seizures. Recently, seizures associated with nonketotic hyperglycemia have been found to be associated with subc...

Occipital seizures and persistent homonymous hemianopia with T2 hypointensity on MRI in nonketotic hyperglycemia.
Nonketotic hyperglycemia (NKH) is known to cause focal motor or secondarily generalized seizures. Occipital seizures in NKH are seldom reported, especially with visual hallucinations and persistent homonymous hemianopia (HH) with characteristic radio

Occipital seizures and subcortical T2 hypointensity in the setting of hyperglycemia.
Occipital lobe seizures are a recognized manifestation of diabetic nonketotic hyperglycemia, though not as common as focal motor seizures. Occipital lobe white matter T2 hypointensity may suggest this diagnosis.

Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related epileptic seizures.
Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related seizures (NKH) are rare. We report a case of NKH-related seizures in a patient following a traumatic brain injury.

Case 204: Nonketotic hyperglycemia-induced hemiballism-hemichorea.
An 87-year-old white woman presented to our emergency department with a 2-day history of involuntary movements of the right upper and lower extremities. The movements increased with action, decreased with relaxation, and disappeared during sleep. The

Benign occipital lobe seizures: Natural progression and atypical evolution.
Benign occipital seizure syndromes are benign childhood epilepsy syndromes and are mainly of two types, Panayiotopoulos syndrome, an autonomic epilepsy and idiopathic childhood occipital epilepsy of Gastaut (ICOE-G) including the idiopathic photosens

Chorea in the both lower limbs associated with nonketotic hyperglycemia.
Hemichorea-hemiballism (HC-HB) is a complication of non-ketotic hyperglycemia (NKH); in NKH patients, the frequency of occurrence of HC-HB is greater than that of bilateral chorea. We report the case of a hyperglycemic patient who showed chorea in bo

Effects of Age, Gender and Hemispheric Location on T2 Hypointensity in the Pulvinar at 3T.
Pulvinar signal intensity decrease on T2-weighted images has been reported in some neurological abnormalities. We aimed to define the normal T2 signal hypointensity pattern present in the pulvinar to avoid erroneous radiological interpretation. One h

Novel finding of optic nerve central T2 hypointensity utilizing 3 Tesla MR imaging.
We sought to report a central T2 hypointensity within the optic nerve on 3 T MRI studies obtained as part of the NASA Flight Medicine Visual Impairment Intracranial Pressure Protocol that had not been described previously. Twenty-one astronauts, who
