Abstract

Huntington's disease (HD) is an inherited autosomal dominant disorder characterized by neurologic, cognitive, and psychiatric symptomatology. Psychiatric symptoms in HD are often amenable to treatment, and relief of these symptoms may provide significant improvement in quality of life. This review will briefly describe neurologic, neuropsychologic and brain imaging data, and then review psychiatric syndromes seen in HD and their treatment.
