Extract

Clinical data on 30 Korean patients of the authors with Gilles de la Tourettes's syndrome are described, as well as data on seven other Korean cases from the literature. The overall characteristics and EEG findings were similar to those of Western patients, but there were fewer obsessive-compulsive behaviour problems, and family histories were less often positive.
