Abstract

Huntington’s disease (HD) is a relentlessly progressive and incurable neurodegenerative disease that affects men and women,usually presenting late in their 4th decade. Each offspring of an affected person has a 50% risk of inheriting this autosomal dominant disorder. It bears the name of George Huntington who described the disease in his talk, then paper, in 1872 [1] although others had written in earlier years about what is clearly the same disease [2].
