The families of 66 consecutive children with Tourette's
syndrome were surveyed for their perception of symptom significance using a questionnaire. Families considered attention deficit and learning difficulties to be most significant, while motor and vocal
tics were least important. When present, episodic rage was the most
impairing symptom. Physicians must be aware of the significance of
these comorbid symptoms for patients with Tourette's syndrome.
