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, espec...

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 subcortical T2 hypointensity on magnetic resonance imaging, especially in the occipital lobes. However,

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.

Homonymous hemianopia: challenges and solutions.
Stroke is the most common cause of homonymous hemianopia (HH) in adults, followed by trauma and tumors. Associated signs and symptoms, as well as visual field characteristics such as location and congruity, can help determine the location of the caus

Clinical reasoning: acute-onset homonymous hemianopia with hyperglycemia: seeing is believing.
A 32-year-old woman with a history of bipolar disorder, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and hypertension and a 4-year history of uncontrolled type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) presented with bifrontal headache, elevated blood sugars (>500 mg/dL), and abrupt

Rehabilitation of homonymous hemianopia: insight into blindsight.
Strong evidence of considerable plasticity in primary sensory areas in the adult cortex, and of dramatic cross-modal reorganization in visual areas, after short- or long-term visual deprivation has recently been reported. In the context of patient re

Homonymous hemianopia due to Erdheim-Chester disease.
Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) is a rare non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis typically affecting multiple organ systems. We report 2 patients who presented with homonymous hemianopia and were ultimately diagnosed with biopsy-confirmed ECD. We review the

Macular pattern dystrophy and homonymous hemianopia in MELAS syndrome.
We report an unusual association of a pattern dystrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium and homonymous hemianopia in a woman diagnosed with mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes syndrome.

Behavioral Consequences and Cortical Reorganization in Homonymous Hemianopia.
The most common visual defect to follow a lesion of the retrochiasmal pathways is homonymous hemianopia (HH), whereby, in each eye, patients are blind to the contralesional visual field. From a behavioral perspective, in addition to exhibiting a seve
