Benign hereditary chorea. A case report.


A case of benign hereditary chorea is reported, along with a brief review of the condition. It is a rare and little known autosomal dominant disorder which may be confused with Huntington's chorea, which has a more serious prognosis. The case described shows some characteristic features. It is difficult to decide how many of the patient's psychiatric difficulties are a reaction to his disabilities and how many have an organic substrate.
