Huntington's chorea, or Huntington's disease, is a neurodegenerative genetic disorder that affects muscle coordination and leads to cognitive decline and psychiatric problems, which typically becomes noticeable in mid-adult life. The disease is the most common genetic cause of abnormal involuntary writhing movements called chorea and is caused by an autosomal dominant mutation in either of an individual's two copies of a gene called Huntingtin, which means any child of an affected person typically has a 50% chance of inheriting the disease. Learn more about the Huntington's disease, its causes and treatments in this book.
