Huntington's disease - clinical signs, symptoms, presymptomatic diagnosis, and diagnosis.

Abstract

HD is a complex illness, with a broad clinical picture that begins years before clear motor onset and evolves over decades to a terminal state of extreme disability. It challenges the resources of families and communities and the skills of medical and ancillary health care providers. A broader understanding of the phenotypes, progression, and genetic basis of HD may elevate the standard of care for these deserving patients.
