Chorea is a rare movement disorder that occurs in children and adults. This is a slow, writhing movement that may occur in the limbs, neck, or trunk. The word “chorea” means dance and the movements have a dance-like quality. Chorea is not suppressible and has no associated urge. Chorea occasionally interferes with activity, but often these movements are mild and not bothersome. Chorea may be due to a number of causes, all of which are extremely rare, especially in childhood.
Chorea is not known to be linked to Tourette Syndrome.
