Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is an X-linked recessive muscular dystrophy that presents in the first decade of life. Neurodevelopmental disorders are increasingly recognized features in DMD including autistic spectrum disorder, attention-deficit– hyperactivity disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The presence of Gilles De La Tourette Syndrome (GTS) in DMD patients is extremely rare. GTS in DMD patients supports the hypothesis that disruption of different dystrophin isoforms may play a role in brain development and function.
