Huntington's Disease is an autimmune disorder that stems from a chromosomal defect. This means it can be passes down through hereditary traits and is actually a dominate traits that plagues many families who have gone on to have kids and did not know that they were passing it down to their children.

Huntington's Disease has many symptoms, but is most commonly characterized with Chorea. Chorea are random, uncontrolled movements of the body's skeletal, or voluntary, muscles. These movements are not jerky like a seizure's violent, random motions. Chorea start as simple movements like the moving of one's jaw up and down and the leaning of the neck and become increasing more complex by the patient's efforts to stop these uncontrolled motions from occuring.

Other symptoms stem from the immune system attacking the brain. These issues present themselves as frontal lobe issues that are much like those in Alzheimer's Diease victims who are experiencing subcortical decay. These issues are normally the loss of memory loss, both short and long term, difficulty problem solving, and difficulty making logical reasoning. Combined with the Chorea, this caused many to believe that entire families were "crazy" before the development of the medicine to our modern state, where we can understand and analyze a victim of Huntington's Disease's DNA, as well as their family's genetic markers to know whether or not that they have the chromosomal defect that cause Huntington's Disease to later take grip of their lives.
