Abnormal involuntary movements induced by hyperglycaemia are epic manifestations of diabetes. They are observed particularly in cases of poorly controlled diabetes. Chorea Hyperglycaemia Basal Ganglia syndrome (C-H-BG) recently referred to as Diabetic Striatopathy (DS) is a rare entity that can lead to misdiagnosis [1]. The prevalence of C-H-BG or DS has been reported to be 1 in 100,000 [2]. Although rare, C-H-BG is often described in non-ketotic hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia [3]. Only rarely has it also been described in ketotic hyperglycaemia. We report a case of diabetic chorea following diabetic ketoacidosis.
