Example text

Tics can be distinguished from athetosis, chorea, and myoclonus by the lack of continuity of the movement, the intervening periods of normal movement, and the lack of interference with ongoing tasks. Tics are also distinguished from chorea and myoclonus by the predictability and repeatability of the movements. Tics can be distinguished from tremor and stereotypies by the clear initiation and termination of each individual tic movement, and by the lack of rhythmicity in the timing of initiation of movement.

6 Because athetosis is typically non-patterned and it resembles slow chorea, it may be considered to be more linked to chorea than dystonia. 2 Clinical Features of Hyperkinetic Disorders Dystonia Chorea Athetosis Myoclonus Tremor Tics Stereotypies Distractibility No No No No No Yes Yes Suppressibility Partial No No No Briefly Usually Yes Duration Variable Ongoing Ongoing Shock like Ongoing Variable Variable Speed Variable Medium–fast Slow–medium Very fast (<1 second) 2–14 Hz Variable Variable Jerkiness Sometimes Sometimes No Very Sometimes Sometimes Rare Stereotyped Often No No Usually Yes Yes Yes Rhythmic Sometimes No No Sometimes Yes Usually not Yes Intermittent Sometimes Sometimes No Sometimes Sometimes Yes Yes Ongoing Sometimes Yes Yes Sometimes Yes No Yes Flowing No Yes Yes No No Sometimes Sometimes Sub-movements No Yes Maybe No No Sometimes Sometimes Context Movement > rest Movement > rest Rest > movement All Variable Rest Rest Predictable Sometimes No No No No Yes Often not aware Normal pattern Sometimes Yes Yes No Yes Yes Yes From Ref.
