Relating breakthroughs in phenomenology and neurobiology and current strategies for diagnosis, assessment, and clinical care, this long-anticipated Second Edition provides expanded descriptions of clinical features, further evidence linking heritability to etiology, and revised epidemiological estimates as observed in the most recent research on Tourette's syndrome (TS) and associated disorders. The latest information about the controversial poststreptococcal hypothesis is also presented and discussed.
