Sensory tics in Tourette's syndrome.

Author information

  • 1Department of Neurology, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, NY 14642.


Sensory tics are localized uncomfortable sensations for which patients attempt to obtain relief by producing movements or vocalizations. We report 3 patients with Tourette's syndrome (TS) and sensory tics to illustrate this poorly recognized symptom. A survey of 34 randomly selected TS patients indicates that sensory tics are common and should be considered part of a clinical spectrum of tics and associated sensory phenomena.
