Huntington’s disease is a hereditary disease classified as a motor disorder. Due to the progressive nature of the neurons, the patient may suffer from multiple symptoms such as muscular rigidity, slow movements, altered posture, and balance, difficulty speaking and concentrating, and psychiatric disorders such as recurrent thoughts about death or social isolation. Generally, the disease manifests its first symptoms in people between the ages of 40 and 50. Although it has no cure, nor can the deterioration be prevented, there are treatments with medicines available to control the symptomatology.
