Torete Syndrome

Were you looking for information about Tourette Syndrome? Torete syndrome is a common misspelling of Tourette syndrome.
 
People who have Tourette syndrome may have repetitive involuntary movements and vocalizations (called tics), such as facial grimacing, repetitive throat-clearing, or grunting sounds. This neurological condition affects all ethnic groups; however, males are typically affected three to four times more than females. Although the cause of this condition is unknown at this time, researchers believe that it may be hereditary. In some cases, certain medications may help treat behavioral conditions caused by Tourette syndrome.
