Abstract

Sensory symptons are generally not associated with Huntington's disease (HD). We describe two patients with HD who had painful sompatosensory symptons. One patient also had auditory hallucinations. No other cause was found for these symptoms. Both patients also had significant depression and one patient committed suicide. Somatosensory symptons may be a marker for depression in HD.
