A possible post-streptococcal movement disorder with chorea and tics.

Author information

Department of Neuroscience, University of North Dakota, Grand Forks.


A 14-year-old girl developed a movement disorder after a streptococcal infection. In the acute phase of the illness she exhibited simple and complex motor tics and chorea, but all abnormal movements ceased over the following eight months, without recurrence. This case raises questions about the relationship between tics, chorea and auto-immune reactivity.
