These tics appear several times a day, in a recurrent way, for more than one year during which there isn’t any free period which lasts for more than three months. Tics determine a severe social damage or affects other important areas of the subject’s functioning. It is a multifactorial pathology with a difficult and polymorphous clinical picture and this is the reason of a multidisciplinary approach to the patients. The case of P. is a clear example of the different elements and aspects which characterize this syndrome.
