8 Possible Causes for Non-Purposeful Arm Movements

  • Rheumatic Chorea

    To describe the epidemiology and clinical features of Sydenham's chorea in the Aboriginal population of northern Australia a review was conducted of 158 episodes in 108 people: 106 were Aborigines, 79 were female, and the mean age was 10.9 years at first episode.

  • Rett Syndrome

    Rett Syndrome (RS; MIM_312750) is a severe and progressive neurodevelopmental disorder affecting principally females. Mutations in X-Linked MECP2 gene (methyl CpG-binding protein 2; MIM_300005) have been reported as being the major cause of RS. Mutations in this gene have been described as cause of wide[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
