Huntington's disease

Huntington's disease (HD) is a rare, progressive, inherited neurodegenerative disorder causing motor, cognitive and behavioral symptoms. Some symptoms are similar to those of Parkinson's disease. It can affect men and women of all ethnic groups and occurs throughout the world. The World Health Organization estimates that for every 100,000 people in western countries, five to seven will have HD.(1)
