Abstract

Huntington's Disease is a comprehensive book designed for both clinician and scientist. Neurologic, psychiatric, and epidemiologic issues are discussed in equal depth; sections involving genetic counseling and the unique social concerns of the patient with Huntington's disease are presented with sensitivity. The background and current status of genetic testing is described with clarity and brevity, while the ethical issues such testing raises are thoughtfully considered. The rationale for and experience with pharmacologic treatment of Huntington's disease is included as are practical suggestions for the caregiver. The appendices include a list of voluntary societies concerned with Huntington's disease throughout the world. This thorough review is a valuable resource for the neurologist, psychiatrist, or researcher interested in this disease.
