Tourette Syndrome

Tourette Syndrome is an inherited, neurological condition, its key features are tics, involuntary and uncontrollable sounds and movements.  The tics are usually of a mild nature, however in the more extreme condition they can manifest themselves in involuntary swearing or making obscene or otherwise unacceptable movements or gestures.

 

The disorder is named after Gilles de la Tourette, the  French neurologist and neuropsychiatrist, , who in 1885, whilst working  at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris, described 9 cases of this condition.
