Epidemiological aspects of huntingtons chorea in the genoa italy region from 1930 1977

, : Epidemiological aspects of huntingtons chorea in the genoa italy region from 1930 1977. Rivista di Patologia Nervosa e Mentale 100(5): 239-244

As a preliminary approach to an epidemiological investigation of Huntington's disease, the incidence of admissions of these patients to neurological and psychiatric departments in Genoa and the surrounding region from 1930-1977 is reported. The number of patients (84 cases) and their family history (225 cases of chorea in the ancestors) suggest a remarkable higher prevalence of Huntington's disease (28 cases of 100,000 inhabitants) than it is usually estimated. Further studies are required to assess the distribution of the disease in the whole population of the region.
