Hemichorea-hemiballism can be the solely presentation of a wide range of non-neurological clinical pictures, such as metabolic or hydro-electrolyte derange­ments. Hemichorea-hemiballism as the first presentation of type 2 diabetes mellitus has been described. The case depicted herein reinforces this association highlighting that especially in elder patients with new­ly diagnosed hemichorea-hemiballism, non-ketotic hyperglycemia should promptly be recognized.
