Huntington's syndrome is synonym for a serious condition that is also hereditary. This disease attacks brain and nerves damaging basic motor functions – movements. Also, intellectual functions might be damaged. It is a rare case to see someone so young suffering from this disease, but, unfortunately, that happened to your daughter. As for gene, we are talking of the gene responsible for this disease, located on chromosome 4.
