abnormalities. Suicidality is very frequent in this disease being the third most
common cause of death. Tetrabenazine is a drug to treat chorea in
Huntington's disease and depression being one of the common side effects of
tetrabenazine may increase suicidality rate in this disease. We hereby report a

recovered after treatment.
