Neurology [SP]

We report the case of an 82-years old woman with sporadic acute hemiballism associated with bilateral striatal degeneration of non vascular origin which was most severe in the side contralateral to the hemiballism.

he patient's neuropathological lesions resembled those of patients with senile chorea. Although hemiballism has never been described as an isolated manifestation of primary degeneration of the striatum, it may so occur in elderly patients with hemiballism.
