Vesico-urethral function in Huntington's chorea.


Six patients with Huntington's chorea (5 females, 1 male) underwent neuro-urological evaluation because of urological complaints, usually incontinence. Four patients had detrusor hyperreflexia with a normal sphincter and two patients had a normal study, suggesting that their incontinence might be non-organic. A characteristic urodynamic pattern, not previously described, was observed, consisting of choreiform contractions of the abdominal perineal floor muscles during filling with selective suppression of choreiform contractions in the perineum during detrusor contraction.
