  7. 7. GILLES DE LA TOURETTE SYNDROME  Incidence : 0.03 – 0.05% M:F - 3:1  Prevalence: 0.5-1%  Onset - mean 7 y (2-15y) 95% < 11y  1/3rd family members have tics  Motor tics:  Rapid abrupt, intermittent, present in sleep, multifocal simple or complex  Involve face, eyes, and proximal extremities  Vary spontaneously, Echopraxia, Copropraxia  Vocal tics  Involuntary, words, grunts, bark, sniff, snuts, squeals, echolalia, coprolalia
  8. 8. COPROLALIA  The uncontrolled, often obsessive use of obscene or scatological language, cursing, ethnic slurs  Thought to possessed by the devil.  Ostracized from their communities or punished for behaviors 8/19/2013

  10. 10.  Course: Natural remission and waxing and waning of severity  Other features: Soft neurological sign  Altered tone  Mild incoordination  Babinski’s sign  No sensory sign  Association  Migraine ( 5HT disorder)  Sec. compressive neuropathy and myelopathy due to violent tics  Sleep disorder – somnambulism, sleep terror, ↓ REM sleep, ↑ stage 3-4 sleep,  EEG and Evoked potential normal  Pre-movement EEG potential absent (subcortical origin)
  11. 11. ASSOCIATION  ADHS – 60-80%  OCD  Conduct disorder 8/19/2013
  12. 12. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY  Midbrain, basal ganglionic dopaminergic dysfunction (turnover ↓ receptor hypersensitivity)  5HT – Associated with migraine  NA – Improve with clonidine  Cholinergic – Improve with physostigmine  GABA – Clonazepam relieve symptom  Encephalin → dopamine release. Opioid agonist N2O relieve symptom
  13. 13. PATHOGENESIS  Anatomical: prefrontal cortex and caudate nucleus  Biochemical: Dopamine  Genetics: AD (Chr 4p and 8p)  Immunological: PANDAS 8/19/2013
  14. 14. DIAGNOSTIC CRITERIA  Multiple motor tics  One or more vocal tics  No known cause  Age of onset less than 18 years.  A duration of greater than one year. “Tourette Syndrome Study Group (1993)” 8/19/2013
  15. 15. DSM IV CRITERIA OF TOURETTE SYNDROME  Age of onset between 5-15y  Multiple motor tics  Multiple vocal tics  Ability to suppress movement voluntarily for min to hours  Variation in the intensity of symptom over weeks to months  Duration of more than a year

  19. 19. TREATMENT  Education  Tic: Anti Dopamine  Associated disorder: ADHS/OCD 8/19/2013
  20. 20. PROGNOSIS  Marked improvement in late teens or early twenties.  They get better, not worse, as they mature  TS patients have a normal life span.  1/ 3 of patients experience remission of tic symptoms in adulthood.” 8/19/2013 Samuel Johnson 1709-1784 “Good English Dictionary
