We report the first case, to our knowledge, of non-ketotic hyperglycemic (NKH) related occipital seizures studied by continuous EEG-fMRI in an undiagnosed diabetic patient. Ictal EEG showed left posterior spikes and sharp-waves. Seizures subsided after insulin therapy was started. Continuous EEG-fMRI was performed and BOLD activation was identified in the left Brodmann's area 18 (visual association area). Activation of an epileptic focus related with the patient's metabolic disturbance can be postulated.
