As a neurological disorder, Tourette syndrome results in repetitive involuntary movements and vocalizations (known as tics).

Possible symptoms of this condition can include repetitive throat-clearing, facial grimacing, and grunting. In some cases, medications may help treat certain behavioral conditions caused by Tourette syndrome.
