A 12-year-old diabetic female with right-side hemiparesis and aphasia occurring after a hypoglycemic episode is reported. Her clinical course improved over a 24-hour period, and further investigation revealed only electroencephalographic slowing, which was more prominent on the left. Ten months later, she had a recurrence of the same symptoms, which also resolved rapidly. This potential complication of hypoglycemia is often mistaken for a cerebrovascular accident.
