    Wow. Huntington's killing a 7 year old?

    It shows you the regressive nature of the disease and how it strikes earlier each generation.

    Very sad and very sick of these people.

    Dealing with someone with Huntington's Dementia is not pleasant.

    All I know if it were my daughter, and these were the neighbors, I might wind up in jail on an assault charge.

    I don't really get why people get so worked up about duplicate threads. Especially if it's an obscure event that isn't at the top of "active topics". I mean, I suppose we could all do a search before we post, but what is the fun in that?

    At any rate, here is the original:

    Actually, that looks like a Dante spin off thread. The original seems to have been banished by the mods.

    So I did everyone a favor and brought it back it seems! Go me! Yay!

    My first patient on my first internal medicine rotation had Huntington's. It was actually, medically, a very interesting case.

    The family brought her in because she was completely demented and she had a history of alcoholism so we just assumed that was the root of the dementia. So we replaced her thiamine and she only corrected slightly. None of us could figure it out, until neurology came and saw her and made her get out of bed and the neurologist pointed out her "chorioform movements" to me that are virtually diagnostic of the disease.

    We had all missed it, despite all of our workups and daily physical exams, none of us had made her get out of bed and observe her gait. It was a good learning point and also interesting. Kind of like an episode of "House".

    At any rate, it was very sad. The disease is autosomal dominant, virtually non-treatable, certainly not curable, and completely degenerative. Her children have a 50% chance of having it. When we broke the news to them, it was pretty tough. You are kind of used to dealing with bad news that only affects the patient, but this is the first time I had to deal with bad news that directly affected the family too.

    I have obviously not forgotten it, and I doubt I ever will.

    Yeah, that sounds like tough news to break. Not only is your relative going to die in such a manner, but God is rolling the dice with you as well.
