Chorea - Definition


Definition


Chorea is a neurological syndrome that causes abnormal, uncoordinated, involuntary movements. Sydenham's chorea (or Saint Vitus' dance) is easily treated with antibiotics that eliminate the streptococcus at its origin. Huntington's disease (formerly called Huntington's chorea), however, is hereditary in origin, caused by the destruction of certain neurons, and appears at around the age of 40. There is no treatment for Huntington's disease, but antidepressants can ease the symptoms. Physical therapy is also recommended to improve balance and work the muscles.
