Were you looking for more information about Tourette Syndrome? Terrett syndrome is a common misspelling of Tourette syndrome.
Tourette syndrome is a neurological disorder that affects an estimated 200,000 Americans. People with this condition most often experience repetitive, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics. A diagnosis of Tourette syndrome is made after verifying that the affected person has had both motor and vocal tics for at least one year. While most people do not require treatment, as tic symptoms do not usually cause harm, medications are available to treat behavioral conditions and symptoms that interfere with functioning.
