Abstract

This paper described one detailed and two brief reports of patients with Gilles de la Tourette's syndrome successfully treated with haloperidol. It is likely that the aetiology of the syndrome is organic pathology of the central nervous system, and possible that psychological characteristics are secondary effects of the illness.
