The material upon which this thesis is founded consists of 100 cases of Chorea that have been studied by me in hospital practice. Definition: Chorea is a spasmodic affection of the Nervous System characterised by involuntary movements, which are sudden, jerky and irregular, and by a variable degree of muscular weakness accompanied by in-coordination of voluntary movements, and by psychical disturbances usually of the nature of habetude and mental weakness; to these may be added phenomena of arthritis and endocarditis.
