Tourette’s syndrome is a complex genetic disorder characterized by repetitive, sudden, or tic-like movements. Tics usually appear in childhood and their severity changes over time. In most cases, tics are less common in the last years of adolescence and adulthood. People with Tourette’s syndrome perform repetitive, involuntary movements known as tics. In addition, people with Tourette’s syndrome make sounds that are incomprehensible. Some tics involve only one muscle group, such as the occasional blinking or contact of the chin with the shoulder, or the shaking of the nostrils, which are usually the first
signs of Tourette’s syndrome.
