About Huntington’s Disease

Huntington’s disease (HD), also called Huntington’s chorea, is a fatal genetic brain disorder that causes uncontrolled movements, emotional problems, loss of thinking ability (cognition) and psychiatric disorders. HD causes a progressive degeneration and atrophy of nerve cells in the basal ganglia, specifically the caudate, putamen and, as the disease progresses, the cerebral cortex. Mutations in the HTT gene cause Huntington disease. Adult-onset Huntington disease, is the most common form of this disorder, usually appearing in a person’s thirties or forties. A less common form of Huntington disease known as the juvenile form begins in childhood or adolescence, and tends to progress more quickly than adult-onset.
