Gilles de la Tourette’s syndrome

An unusual, inherited neurological disorder that is transmitted by an autosomal dominant gene. 

Gilles de la Tourette’s syndrome is more commonly seen in males and begins in childhood with constant grimaces and tics.  Involuntary grunts, barks or other noises can arise as the disease progresses.  In certain cases, the sufferer has periods of compulsively using bad language (a condition called coprolalia).

People with Tourette’s syndrome generally have it their whole lives; in certain sufferers antipsychotic drugs can help to relieve some of the symptoms.
