Tics, a common disturbance of childhood, are estimated to occur in approximately 4-24% of children. These involuntary 'habits' are usually mild, self limited, and often resolve before professional consultation is sought. Occasionally however, motor movements are prominent, progressive, and accompanied by noises or profanity. In the case report, a 16-year-old boy has symptoms of a severe multiple tic condition, known by the eponym Gilles de la Tourette syndrome.
