It should be kept in mind that this clinical picture in the pathogenesis of which hyperglycemia, cerebral ischemia and consumption of GABA are thought to be involved and which generally improves with regulation of blood glucose may be the first cause of presentation to the emergency department especially in patients whose diabetes is not known and rapid intervention should be performed.
