Abstract

Although hemichorea is often ascribed to a vascular lesion, generalized chorea of adult onset is often thought to be due to degenerative diseases. We describe a 74‐year‐old woman with generalized chorea that was diagnosed at autopsy as due to multiple lacunar infarcts in the basal ganglia. Generalized chorea in adults may be caused by vascular disease of the basal ganglia.
