We present a family with infantile onset of progressive choreoathetosis. The movements affected the legs predominantly and also impaired gait. No dementia, seizures, or rigidity was noted. Inheritance was autosomal dominant. This new familial movement disorder can be differentiated easily from other hereditary choreas.
