How do choreiform movements affect the child?

Q: My son is 7 years old. We recently visited an ENT specialist who advised us to visit a neurologist as he suspected choreiform movements. What are these movements and how does it affect the child?

A:Choreiform movements are involuntary, dancing, brief, rapid and sudden movements, which vary in intensity and severity. If mild, they can be masked into purposeful movements. They indicate a disorder of large collection of cells deep in the brain that are called basal ganglia. I would recommend that you consult a neurologist to confirm these movements and determine the cause (there are over 150 disorders that may cause this disorder).
