Huntington’s disease (HD) is a autosomal dominant neurogenetic disease causing involuntary movements, emotional and behavioral disturbances, and
cognitive decline over ten to twenty years. Each child of an affected parent are at risk with a 50/50 chance of inheriting the same fatal affliction. HD usually strikes between the ages of 30 to 40, in an individual’s prime productive years, though children as young as a couple of months old, and adults in their eighties may also develop
. Most individuals in the late stages of illness require enormous assistance; they lose the ability to walk, talk, and feed themselves, but are still consciously aware of themselves and their families.
Juvenile Huntington's disease (JHD) is more virulent and devastating with seizures and dystonia. Typically, children up to 20 years of age with a CAG of 60 or above are diagnosed with JHD.
