Structural brain lesions are the common causes of focal seizure. We report two patients who presented with focal fits with non-ketotic hyperglycaemia. There were no focal brain lesions to account for the fits. The fit of one patient was aborted by intravenous phenytoin while the other by controlling the blood sugar.
