Huntington's chorea – Neurodegenerative disease of brain
Although it is not a fatal disease, it clearly weakens the immune system and reduces life expectancy. During the disease, the neurons of the caudate nucleus, co-responsible for motor coordination, disappear. The first symptoms include, among others, deterioration of concentration and organization of thoughts, slow thinking and dementia. The disease first attacks the smaller and more delicate muscles that control the tongue, throat, and lungs. Huntington’s chorea is one of the rarest diseases in the world. It affects 7 people out of 100,000.
