Huntington disease-like 2 with parkinsonism: a case report


  • An individual with genetically confirmed Huntington’s disease-like 2 (HDL-2) had symptoms associated with parkinsonism and imaging detecting reduced striatal dopamine transporter (DAT) uptake.

Why this matters

    HDL-2 should be taken into consideration as a cause of parkinsonism, notably when cognitive/psychiatric symptoms or hyperkinetic movements are present or in those with African ancestry.
