We present a rare case of hemichorea associated with a hemorrhagic stroke in the contralateral striatum.
The geriatric population is at high risk of severe low blood glucose (LBG) events due to diminished homeostatic mechanisms, especially on hypoglycemic medications. Moderate to severe LBG events in these patients can contribute to behavior changes such as agitation, change in level of consciousness, disruption of sleep, instability and increased risk of myocardial infarction, stroke and falls. Rapid recognition and appropriate treatment and prevention of LBG and recurrences can reduce risk for hospitalization in the geriatric population.

Authors: Osei-Owusu J, Yang J, Del Carmen Vitery M, Tian M, Qiu Z Abstract Severe local acidosis causes tissue damage and pain, and is associated with many diseases, including cerebral and cardiac ischemia, cancer, infection, and inflammation. However, the molecular mechanisms of the cellular response to extracellular acidic environment are not fully understood. We recently identified a novel and evolutionarily conserved membrane protein, PAC (also known as PACC1 or TMEM206), encoding the proton-activated chloride (Cl-) channel, whose activity is widely observed in human cell lines. We demonstrated that genetic del...
