Abstract

We report on 2 brothers with chorea and monocular horizontal nystagmus beginning in early infancy, both of which remit during the first decade of life, and peripheral cataracts. While this condition shares manifestations with benign hereditary chorea and several other familial movement disorders, the slowly remitting course of the chorea combined with the visual abnormalities appears to be unique.
