FRANQUELO MORALES, Pablo; VALERO SERRANO, Beatriz; TOLEDO GOMEZ, Juan Ramón  and  GONZALEZ MARTINEZ, Félix. Chorea induced by Parkinson's disease treatment. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2010, vol.3, n.2, pp.131-134. ISSN 2386-8201.

Chorea is a hyperkinetic movement disorder characterized by brief movements, irregular, rapid and unpredictable changing of a body part to another. It may be hereditary, being Huntington's disease the main cause, or acquired, where drugs represent the most common cause in clinical practice. Levodopa may cause chorea as a complication of prolonged treatment in patients with Parkinson's disease. Its treatment required dose reduction and symptom control in function of the intensity and functional impact of chorea.

Keywords : Chorea; Antiparkinson Agents.
