Huntingdon's Chorea (Huntington's Disease)

Huntingdon's Chorea, also know as Huntington's Disease, is a genetic disorder that usually strikes adults in mid-life. Its symptoms are involuntary muscle twitching, a decline in mental faculties and increasing psychiatric problems. Unfortunately, this decline continues until the condition becomes fatal. As a genetic condition, it is passed down from parent to child with a child of a Huntingdon's Disease victim having a 50% chance of developing this condition.
