Diabetes mellitus is a disease of high prevalence, as well as its acute complications. One of them is the nonketotic hyperosmolar state that is rarely associated with involuntary changes in movement. However, there is a condition that associates glycemic alterations with movement disorders, called chorea hyperglycemia basal ganglia syndrome, of which we present a case and review the literature.

Keywords : Hemichorea; Chorea; Diabetes; Hyperglycaemia; Non-ketotic hyperglycaemia.
