Cerebrospinal fluid acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity was studied as a possible marker for central cholinergic neuronal function in seven patients with Gilles de la Tourette's syndrome. No significant differences were found between CSF AChE activity in untreated or haloperidol-treated patients and control populations. These data do not appear to support a pathophysiologic association between the cholinergic system and Gilles de la Tourette's syndrome.
