Tourette’s syndrome is a tic disorder that is often associated with behavioural symptoms. Diagnostic criteria are based on the presence of both motor and vocal tics; because of its varied presentations, the syndrome has the potential to be misdiagnosed. Prevalence is higher than commonly assumed; coprolalia is relatively rare (10-30%) and not required for diagnosis. The syndrome can cause serious distress and compromise health related quality of life. The main management strategies include psychoeducation, behavioural techniques, and drugs. Service provision is patchy even in developed countries and patients of all ages often “fall through the net” between neurology and psychiatry.
