    About Huntington's Disease Huntington's disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that can be inherited from one generation to another as an autosomal dominant trait. It arises due to genetically programmed degeneration of neurons in some parts of the brain such as basal ganglia and cerebral cortex. Basal ganglia plays an important role in coordinating movement while cerebral cortex regulates perception, thought, and memory. Degeneration of neurons leads to progressive cognitive impairment and dementia. People with Huntington's disease often develop chorea that causes involuntary muscle movements of hands, face, trunk, and feet. The behavioural disorders associated with the disease include depression, psychosis, and changes in personality. Other symptoms of the disease include speech impairment, anxiety, stress, and difficulty in swallowing. People suffering from Huntington's disease usually develop symptoms in their mid-30s and 40s. However, in few cases, disease symptoms appear in childhood or teens. The former case represents the adult-onset form of the disease, while the latter is the early-onset form. The early-onset form is associated with symptoms such as tremors, slow movements, and rigidity. Children with early-onset disease rarely live to adulthood. Currently, there is no approved treatment for Huntington's disease.
