Abstract

Some abnormal hand movements, unknown to the majority of hand surgery specialists can often lead to misdiagnosis, especially when they are secondary to a medical or psychiatric condition. We would like to present the case of a seizure localised to the hand secondary to a non-ketotic hyperglycaemia. It is extremely important to recognize this clinical presentation and to diagnose this condition as soon as possible in order to provide appropriate care and treatment. Timely diagnosis is a matter of paramount importance as it reduces the risk of introducing inappropriate treatment that could aggravate the clinical presentation. In conclusion, when assessing unexplained hand movements, it is important to test the blood glucose levels in an emergency setting in order to rule out non- ketotic hyperglycemia.
