Abstract

According to the convention established by Huntington, Huntington's disease is defined by symptoms and etiology. The symptoms are progressive chorea and dementia. The etiology is genetic; inheritance is autosomal dominant with full penetrance but delayed onset. Occasionally, patients are seen with typical symptoms of Huntington's disease, but without any family history of similarly affected persons. Such a patient, together with the unexpected neuropathology, is reported here.
