Physicians treating patients with Tourette syndrome (TS) should be prepared to answer several frequently asked questions posed by parents of children, or individuals, with this syndrome. Prominent in the list of inquiries are those dealing with the outcome: “Do tics get worse over time?” and “Do they ever resolve, and if so, when?” with the most focused question being “What is going to happen to my child?” Data provided in the article by Bloch et al1 in this issue of ARCHIVES offer further insight into addressing these perplexing issues.
