Abstract

Acute movement disorder associated with bilateral basal ganglia lesions is an increasingly recognized syndrome in patients with end-stage renal disease, especially in the setting of diabetes mellitus. The exact mechanism of the basal ganglia lesions is unclear. We report a patient with end-stage diabetic nephropathy admitted to our clinic with acute onset bilateral ballistic movements.
