What is Choreoathetosis?
A condition characterized by uncontrollable movements of the limbs, face, and trunk. In this disorder, the jerky, rapid movements typical of chorea are combined with the slower, continuous writhing movements of athetosis.
Choreoathetosis may occur in children with cerebral palsy. It may also be a side effect of certain drugs.
