Abstract

Sydenham's chorea is a cardinal feature of rheumatic fever. It is known by its dyskinesia and susceptibility to carditis, but associated psychiatric disorder is being recognised. This has included tics and obsessive compulsive disorder, but we report hallucinations in an indigenous girl, suffering her third bout of chorea.
