Chorea

Chorea (or choreia, occasionally) is an abnormal involuntary movement disorder, one of a group of neurological disorders called dyskinesias.

Alternating hemiplegia of childhood is a rare syndrome characterized by infantile onset of episodic hemi-or quadriplegia. Most cases are accompanied by dystonic posturing, choreoathetoid movements, abnormal ocular movements, developmental delay, and progressive cognitive impairment.

Torsion dystonia-2 is an autosomal recessive neurologic disorder characterized by onset of symptoms in childhood or adolescence. 'Dystonia' is characterized by involuntary, sustained muscle contractions affecting one or more sites of the body; 'torsion' refers to the twisting nature of body movements observed in dystonia. DYT2 first affects distal limbs and later involves the neck, orofacial, and craniocervical regions. DYT2 is slowly progressive but mild overall.

Dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA) is an autosomal dominant spinocerebellar degeneration caused by an expansion of a CAG repeat encoding a polyglutamine tract in the atrophin-1 protein. It is also known as Haw River Syndrome and Naito-Oyanagi disease.

Dystonia Type 12, also known as rapid-onset dystonia-parkinsonism, is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by abrupt onset of asymmetric dystonia and parkinsonism in young adulthood, often after a trigger such as physical overexertion, trauma, heat, or fever. Affected individuals also show slowly progressive nonparoxysmal neurologic deterioration in a rostrocaudal gradient with prominent bulbar dysfunction.

Paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis (PKC) is an autosomal dominant neurologic condition characterized by recurrent and brief attacks of involuntary movement triggered by sudden voluntary movement. These attacks usually have onset during childhood or early adulthood and can involve dystonic postures, chorea, or athetosis. Symptoms become less severe with age and show favorable response to anticonvulsant medications such as carbamazepine or phenytoin. It is the most common type of paroxysmal movement disorder. The condition is often misdiagnosed as an epileptic manifestation

Familial dyskinesia with facial myokymia is an autosomal dominant movement disorder characterized by childhood onset of involuntary choreiform or dystonic movements that involve the limb and facial muscles. The severity is variable, but can result in difficulty walking and talking.

Huntington disease is a progressive brain disorder that causes uncontrolled movements, emotional problems, and loss of thinking ability (cognition). Adult-onset Huntington disease, the most common form of this disorder, usually appears in a person's thirties or forties. Early signs and symptoms can include irritability, depression, small involuntary movements, poor coordination, and trouble learning new information or making decisions.
