Psychosis Linked to More Severe Cognitive, Functional and Behavioral Symptoms, But Less Chorea, Study Finds

Publication date: Oct 22, 2019

This post was originally published on this site People with Huntington’s disease who develop psychosis tend to have worse cognitive and behavioral disturbances, reduced ability to function, and fewer involuntary movements than patients who do not experience these psychiatric symptoms, a new study reports. Results showed that 190 participants (17. 6%) experienced symptoms of psychosis during the course of their disease, 97 of whom already had a history of psychosis before the study. Regarding motor disturbances, participants with psychosis had significantly lower scores for chorea (9. 13 vs. 10. 18) – a type of involuntary movement associated with Huntington’s – indicating lower frequency of this symptom.
