It is a condition due to a dominant and faulty genetic disorder on chromosome 4 The consequence of the fault with this gene starts around or just before middle age, and leads to a gradual physical, mental and emotional change in its victim. Huntington's Disease was named after the American, Dr. George Huntington, because in 1872 he was the first person to document an accurate description of the symptoms and the route of the disease. The cause was then unknown.

Huntington's disease
Published by Bupa's health information team, , April 2008. This factsheet is for people who have Huntington's disease, or who would like information about it. Huntington's disease is an inherited disorder that causes the degeneration of brain cells. This results in a progressive loss of the control of movement and mental ability, and changes in personality. Around 4,800 people in the UK are living with Huntington's disease. It used to be called Huntington's chorea. Chorea means jerky, involuntary movements - a main symptom of the condition.
About Huntington's disease
Huntington's disease usually develops between the ages of 30 and 50, but it can start at any age. Symptoms get worse gradually, sometimes over a period of up to 20 years. At the moment, there is no cure for the disease, but there are ways to help manage the symptoms.

Huntington's disease or Huntington's chorea is an inherited disorder characterized by abnormal body movements called chorea and loss of memory . The incidence is about 1/200,000. The causative gene (which is one of the first identified to cause an inherited disease) is located on chromosome 4. The product of this gene is referred to as huntingtin and the continous accumulation of this protein in

Huntington's disease
A degenerative brain disorder that usually appears in mid-life. Its symptoms, which include involuntary movement of the face and limbs, mood swings, and forgetfulness, get worse as the disease progresses. It is generally fatal within 20 years.
In 1872, the American physician George Huntington wrote about an illness that he called "an heirloom from generations away back in the dim past." He was not the first to describe the disorder, which has been traced back to the Middle Ages at least. One of its earliest names was chorea, which, as in "choreography," is the Greek word for dance. The term chorea describes how people affected with the disorder writhe, twist, and turn in a constant, uncontrollable dance-like motion. Later, other descriptive names evolved. "Hereditary chorea" emphasizes how the disease is passed from parent to child. "Chronic progressive chorea" stresses how symptoms of the disease worsen over time. Today, physicians commonly use the simple term Huntington's disease (HD) to describe this highly complex disorder that causes untold suffering for thousands of families.
In the United States alone, about 30,000 people have HD; estimates of its prevalence are about 1 in every 10,000 persons. At least 150,000 others have a 50 percent risk of developing the disease and thousands more of their relatives live with the possibility that they, too, might develop HD.

Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome Huntington's Disease Increase size of text: A A A About Huntington's Disease Huntington's disease (HD) is an inherited, degenerative brain disease that causes both physical and mental disabilities and usually begins in mid-life. Early symptoms can vary from person to person but include involuntary movement of the limbs or facial muscles, difficulty concentrating, and depression. Other symptoms include personality change, memory disturbance, slurred speech, and impaired judgment. Children born to a person with HD have a 50% chance of inheriting the gene that causes HD. Today a genetic test is available to confirm a diagnosis of HD and to identify carriers of the HD gene. It is recommended that anyone considering genetic testing talk first with family and/or appropriate medical and counseling professionals. There is no treatment to stop the progression of HD, but the movement disturbances and psychiatric symptoms can be treated with medication.

Font Font Huntington's Disease is a rather common (in comparison to other neurogical diseases) hereditary disease that stems from the basal ganglia. The disease is named after a relatively unknown Ohio doctor, Dr. George Huntington, who first recognized the condition in 1872. However, recent studies have emerged, stating that doctors as early as the Middle Ages began to associate the symptoms as a common illness. Huntington's affects 8 out of every 100,000 people, and of those infected, approximately 10 percent have what is known as Juvenile Huntington's Disease or Juvenile HD. The disease most often becomes apparent in a person's adult years (specifically, around the age of 35), though instances of juveniles being affected by the

    Statistics by Country for Huntington's Disease
    About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Huntington's Disease: These statistics are calculated extrapolations of various prevalence or incidence rates against the populations of a particular country or region. The statistics used for prevalence/incidence of Huntington's Disease are typically based on US, UK, Canadian or Australian statistics. This extrapolation calculation is automated and does not take into account any genetic, cultural, environmental, social, racial or other differences across the various countries and regions for which the extrapolated Huntington's Disease statistics below refer to. As such, these extrapolations may be highly inaccurate (especially for developing or third-world countries) and only give a general indication (or even a meaningless indication) as to the actual prevalence or incidence of Huntington's Disease in that region. About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Huntington's Disease: The word 'prevalence' of Huntington's Disease usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Huntington's Disease at any given time (i.e. people with Huntington's Disease). The term 'incidence' of Huntington's Disease means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Huntington's Disease diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Huntington's Disease). Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short disease like

What is Huntington's Disease?
Huntington's disease is an inherited disease that causes nerve cells in the brain to stop working properly. It is a progressive disease, meaning it continues to get worse over time, and leads to mental deterioration and loss of the ability to control major muscle movements. An American doctor, George Huntington, first described Huntingtons disease in 1872. It was commonly called Huntington's chorea from the Greek word for "dance," because of the jerky, almost dancelike, movements of people with the disease. The genetic abnormality that causes Huntington's disease was discovered in 1993.

What is Huntington's Disease?
Huntington's disease (HD) is a progressive, inherited, degenerative brain disorder that produces physical, mental and emotional changes. Named for George Huntington, the physician who first described the illness in 1872, Huntington's Disease used to be known as Huntington's chorea, from the Greek for choreography, or dance. The name refers to the involuntary, jerky movements that can develop in later stages of the illness. Although it is less common than some conditions characterized by similar symptoms, such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease, approximately one person in 30,000 in the United States has Huntington's Disease.
