A case of hypoglycemic hemiparesis in a fifteen-year-old girl with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) is described. The initial presentation included left facial paresis and muscular weakness of the left upper and lower extremities, associated with a blood glucose level of 31 mg/dL. The patient recovered completely after a glucose infusion. Her neurological examination became normal within 24 hours and remained so for a follow-up period of 6 months. Hypoglycemic hemiparesis is rarely described in children and adolescents.
