Abstract

Huntington's disease is characterised by a triad of motor symptoms (choreic movements), psychiatric symptoms and cognitive decline. Much less is known about the psychiatric symptoms such as psychosis and anxiety than about the motor symptoms. We discuss the case of a patient with Huntington's disease and psychosis and comment on the possible types of medication that should be used.
