A 38-year-old man presented with progressive worsening of choreiform movements. Serum biochemistry analysis did not reveal any abnormality. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated symmetrical caudate nucleus atrophy and generalised cerebral strophy. Huntington's disease was diagnosed in view of the clinical presentation and the characteristic imaging findings. The clinical, pathological and imaging features of this disease process are discussed.
