Huntington's disease is hereditary, progressive condition. Almost by a rule, it starts after the 30 years of age. Unfortunately, there are rare cases that developed in early childhood, between 5 and 10 years of age. As for seriousness of this condition, I can only say that it is very dangerous, it affects brain cells that control motor and cognitive functions. Estimated rate of life for Huntington patients is 15 years.
