Touret Syndrome

Were you looking for information about Tourette Syndrome? Touret syndrome is a common misspelling of Tourette syndrome.
 
Tourette syndrome is a type of neurological disorder that causes repetitive involuntary movements and vocalizations (known as tics). Early symptoms are almost always noticed first in childhood, with the average age of onset between 7 and 10 years old. Although this condition can occur in both men and women, it is three to four times more likely to affect men. Researchers are not certain on the exact cause of this condition, but it is believed that Tourette syndrome is hereditary. In some cases, certain medications can help treat some of the behavioral conditions that may result from Tourette syndrome.
