Huntington’s disease

Huntington's disease (HD) is a rare and inherited neurological disorder that leads to a progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It affects movement, cognition, and behavior, causing a wide range of physical and mental symptoms.

HD is caused by a mutation in the HTT gene, leading to the production of abnormal huntingtin protein. This protein builds up in the brain, damaging nerve cells, particularly those in the basal ganglia, which plays a crucial role in movement control.
