Hemichorea-hemiballismus (HC-HB) is a movement disorder characterized by involuntary movements involving limbs on one side of the body. Many etiological factors were identified and these included stroke, infection, and neoplasm. However, acute hyperglycemia-induced HC-HB is less well known. We present two cases of non-ketotic hyperglycemia-induced HC-HB. The cases depicted here Illustrate that HC-HB can be the sole presentation from among a variety of neurological manifestations of poorly controlled diabetes which can be easily reversed when hyperglycemia is corrected.

Extramedullary plasmacytoma is a rare complication from multiple myeloma. We report a 56-year-old lady with underlying multiple myeloma who developed swelling over the left eye. It caused a non-axial proptosis, exposure keratopathy and visual acuity of counting fingers. A tissue biopsy revealed infiltration of tissue fragments with neoplastic plasma cells positive for CD138 and Kappa light chain restrictions consistent with plasmacytoma. Following radio-chemotherapy, the mass shrunk tremendously but her visual outcome remained poor.
