Tourette’s syndrome is a progressive disease of the extrapyramidal system, characterized by a variety of motor and vocal ticks that vary in duration and flow, as well as behavioral disorders.
Symptoms of Tourette’s syndrome include motor tics, including vocal and mechanical, which occur unpredictably and can vary in severity, frequency, and location. Emotional experiences can increase or decrease the frequency and severity of tics, depending on the individual characteristics of each patient.
Treatment of Tourette’s syndrome is to help the patient manage the most problematic symptoms. More often the disease does not require pharmacological treatment and proceeds in an easy form. To manage the symptoms of Tourette’s syndrome, the patient is prescribed psychological therapy.
