The objective of this study was to determine the clinical and laboratory characteristics, psychiatric manifestations and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in children and adolescents with Sydenham chorea (SyC). The imaging examination was repeated 1 year after the acute phase of SyC. There were 19 patients with a mean age of 11.7 years and a predominance of females (79%);68% had generalized chorea and 53% moderate chorea. SyC presented as an isolated manifestation in 74%. No association… 
Clinical and Neuroimaging Findings of Sydenham’s Chorea
TLDR
Nonspecific hyperintense white matter abnormalities may be due to the inflammatory process associated with a longer duration of clinical signs and to explain the MRI findings and the pathogenesis of SC, comprehensive studies are needed.
Sydenham's Chorea; Clinical and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Findings, a Retrospective Observational Study in Children
TLDR
Evaluated the correlation between magnetic resonance imaging findings and demographic and clinical characteristics, response to treatment times, and recurrence rates of Sydenham's chorea and determined no significant difference in terms of prefrontal motor cortex, caudate nucleus, or putamen thicknesses between the patient and control groups.

TLDR
Treatment of SC was largely heterogeneous, and immunomodulatory therapy did not show higher efficacy at medium term, although it was associated to a slightly lower risk of relapse compared to symptomatic therapy.
Magnetic resonance imaging in Sydenham chorea
TLDR
A 68-year-old woman, with recurrence of Sydenham chorea (SC) without rheumatic fever, 56 years after the first episode chorea after streptococcal infection is presented, probably an autoimmune disorder.
Neurologic and cardiac findings in children with Sydenham chorea.
TLDR
Although murmurs in patients with Sydenham chorea predicts carditis with high probability, the absence of murmur does not exclude it, and in Patients with carditis, the mitral valve is the one most frequently involved.
Brain magnetic resonance spectroscopy in Sydenham's chorea and ADHD.
TLDR
Magnetic spectroscopic imaging suggests an autoimmune basal ganglia damage in the pathogenesis of Sydenham's chorea and fronto-striatal impairment in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Functional Brain Imaging in Sydenham's Chorea and Streptococcal Tic Disorders
TLDR
The objective of this study was to investigate the cerebral perfusion patterns of the subcortical structures by using hexamethylpropylenamine oxime single-photon emission computed tomography (HMPAO-SPECT) in seven cases of Sydenham's chorea and two cases of streptococcal tic disorder.
Sydenham’s chorea, and its complications affecting the nervous system

TLDR
The associated psychiatric and neurological disorders are considered, especially the obsessive-compulsive and the attention deficit hyperactivity disorders; all linked to previous haemolytic streptococcal infections.
Progressive MRI abnormalities in late recurrence of Sydenham's chorea
TLDR
Four cases of adult recurrence of Sydenham's chorea are reported, suggesting that certain circumstances may trigger the reactivation of persistent immune disorders.
Predictors of recurrence in Sydenham’s chorea: Clinical observation from a single center
TLDR
Syldenham's chorea is still an important health problem and has high morbidity in patients with recurrent and persistent chorea and the irregular usage of antibiotic prophylaxis, failure to achieve remission within 6months, and prolongation of symptoms for more than 1year are risk factors for recurrence of chorea.

A follow-up study of children with behavior disorder and Sydenham's chorea.
TLDR
Several cases showed subsequent neurological findings suggestive of a permanent damage or long-continued organic brain disturbance by the rheumatic process, and further investigation in this area must be done before definite conclusions can be drawn.

TLDR
Results suggest that psychologic, particularly obsessive-compulsive, symptoms are accompanying manifestations of Sydenham's chorea which may require medical attention.
Sydenham chorea
TLDR
Patients with Sydenham chorea had a high familial incidence for both chorea and rheumatic fever, and most patients had generalized chorea, and fewer than 20% had hemichorea.

Abstract We present the MRI and proton spectroscopy findings in a child with clinical diagnosis of Sydenham's chorea. MRI showed high signal in the caudate nuclei and putamina on T2-weighted images.
Chorea in fifty consecutive patients with rheumatic fever
TLDR
Examining the prevalence and clinical features of Sydenham's chorea, a well‐recognized expression of RF, examined 50 consecutive patients with RF seen at the Pediatric Cardiology Clinic, finding that SC remains an important cause of chorea in countries plagued by RF.
Sydenham's Chorea: a Case Showing Reversible Striatal Abnormalities on CT and MRI
TLDR
A case of Syndenham's chorea is described in which striatal abnormalities were found on both CT and MRL Repeat MRI when the patient's illness had resolved was virtually normal, suggesting that abnormal imaging is entirely compatible with a diagnosis of Sydnenham's choresa in a patient with an appropriate clinical history.
