Huntington's disease explained - Better Health Channel -open

Huntington's disease (HD) is a neurological condition caused by the inheritance of a defective gene. The death of brain cells in certain areas of the brain results in a progressive loss of cognitive, physical and emotional function. Symptoms tend to first appear when the person is in their thirties or forties. The most common symptom is jerky movements of the arms and legs ('chorea'). A person with HD may also have difficulties with speech, swallowing and concentration.
