Tourette Syndrome

Description

Tourette syndrome (TS) is an inherited, neurological disorder characterised by multiple involuntary movements and uncontrollable vocalisations called tics that come and go over years.

In a few cases, such tics can include inappropriate words and phrases.

Control, which can sometimes be exercised from seconds to hours at a time, may merely postpone more severe outbursts of symptoms.
