Unilateral chorea or hemichorea is a form of hyperkinetic movement disorder. It is usually associated with vascular causes, such as cerebral infarctions, arteriovenous malformations, and subdural hematomas . These movements usually occur within the first week of strategic stroke when the patient starts recovering from the acute stroke. Delayed onset occurrence of hemichorea has not been described. In this communication, we report a case of hemichorea which developed after 7 months of thalamic hemorrhage and its management.
We thank Mr. Divendu Deewan for neurophysiological studies and secretarial help.
