Abstract

A 63-year-old man presented with hypoglycemia-induced hemiparesis manifesting as diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging changes in the splenium of the corpus callosum and internal capsule which disappeared after glucose administration. Clinicians should be aware that hypoglycemia can cause reversible splenium abnormalities on MR imaging, although the underlying mechanism still remains unclear, as this may be helpful in the differential diagnosis of hypoglycemia-induced hemiparesis and stroke.
