Diabetic striatopathy

Chiu-Jung Lin, Poyin Huang
Diabetic striatopathy is an uncommon and life threatening manifestation of diabetes mellitus. It has a tendency to occur in the elderly, female and people of Asian descent. Patients usually present with hemichorea-hemiballism caused by non-ketotic hyperglycemia. However, patients could develop diabetic striatopathy weeks after the hyperglycemic event, even when blood sugar has been well controlled. Herein, we report a case of delayed onset diabetic striatopathy and discuss the importance of detailed history and brain magnetic resonance imaging for making prompt and accurate diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Diabetic striatopathy (DS) is a rare complication of diabetes mellitus (DM). The syndrome appears in patients with uncontrolled DM and is characterized by abrupt onset of movement disorder, mainly hemichorea and accompanied by specific findings on brain imaging. It is believed that DS is unique to the Asian population and affects mainly elderly women with uncontrolled DM. METHODS: In order to define existence and characterization of DS in Western population, we reviewed the medical records of all patients admitted to the Chaim Sheba Medical Center between 2004 and 2014 and identified those with documented elevated HbA1c (>10%)...

Diabetic striatopathy is a well-known complication of diabetes in adults. To our knowledge, only 2 cases have been reported in children. We here report the case of a teenager in whom diabetic striatopathy was revealed by the subacute appearance of hemichorea-hemiballism in the context of weight loss, polyuria, and polydipsia. Glycemia control allowed rapid clinical recovery despite established striatal lesions documented on MRI. We also discuss current hypotheses about pathophysiological processes underlying this entity...

Diabetic striatopathy is a rare and life-threatening manifestation of diabetes mellitus. The disease commonly affects individuals of Asian descent, females, and the elderly. Patients usually present with hemiballism-hemichorea caused by nonketotic hyperglycemia. Hemiballism-hemichorea is defined as involuntary continuous random appearing movement involving one side of the body. This movement disorder may develop secondary to stroke, diabetic striatopathy, neoplasm, infection, Wilson's disease, and thyrotoxicosis...

BACKGROUND: Unilateral movement disorders and contralateral neuroimaging abnormalities of the striatum have been sporadically reported as a rare syndrome associated with diabetes mellitus. Despite characteristic imaging findings and clinical manifestations, the mechanism underlying this syndrome is still unclear. METHODS: Six patients with this syndrome were studied clinically and subjected to MRI neuroimaging; one underwent biopsy of the striatum, and another underwent additional MR spectroscopy at 3...
