Chorea Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Chorea is a neurological fining consisting of continuous rapid complex body movements that look well coordinated and purposeful but are, in fact, involuntary. Chorea was thought suggestive of a grotesque dance. The term "chorea" is derived from the Greek word "choreia" for dancing (as is choreography). Chorea may affect the hands, feet, trunk, neck, and face. In the face, it often leads to nose wrinkling, mouth or tongue movements and continual flitting eye movements. These disorders may be distinguished from tics, as tics tend to repeat the same set of movements whereas chorea is anything but repetitive. The movements are continually changing and flowing from one body part to another.
