NINDS:44 Chorea is an abnormal involuntary movement disorder, one of a group of neurological disorders called which are caused by overactivity of the neurotransmitter dopamine in the areas of the brain that control movement. Chorea is characterized by brief, irregular contractions that are not repetitive or rhythmic, but appear to flow from one muscle to the next. Chorea often occurs with which adds twisting and writhing movements. Chorea is a primary feature of a progressive, hereditary movement disorder that appears in adults, but it may also occur in a variety of other conditions. occurs in a small percentage (20 percent) of children and adolescents as a complication of rheumatic fever. Chorea can also be induced by drugs (levodopa, anti-convulsants, and anti-psychotics) metabolic and endocrine disorders, and vascular incidents.

MalaCards: Chorea is related to chorea-acanthocytosis and huntington's disease. An important gene associated with Chorea is VPS13A (vacuolar protein sorting 13 homolog A (S. cerevisiae)), and among its related pathways is Neuroscience. The compound sodium have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, globus pallidus and thyroid, and related mouse phenotypes are mortality/aging and nervous system.
