Tourette de Pologne - Archiv


Das Tourette-Syndrom ist eine neuropsychiatrische Erkrankung, die durch das Auftreten von mindestens einem vokalen und mehreren motorischen Tics gekennzeichnet ist. Allgemein sind Tics unwillkürliche, sich wiederholende Bewegungen verschiedener Muskelgruppen, die plötzlich auftreten und als Zuckungen bzw. Lautäußerungen zum Ausdruck kommen. Einfache motorische und vokale Tics laufen eher schnell ab und wirken dadurch unbeabsichtigt, während komplexe Tics durch ihren langsameren Ablauf oft willkürlich erscheinen. 

1885 veröffentlichte  der französische Neurologe Gilles de la Tourette aus dem Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris auf Grund von 9 Krankefällen seine Studien über die mitunter schon im frühen Kindesalter beginnende neuropsychiatrische Erkrankung. Unter seinem Namen wurde dieses Krankheitsbild in der ganzen Welt bekannt.
