Holistic approach in the treatment of a boy with Tourette’s disorder

Tourette’s disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder with combined motor and vocal tics. The etiology of the disease is not clear, but results suggest the role of genetic factors. The paper describes a case of a holistic approach in the treatment of a ten-year-old boy with Tourette’s disorder. The pharmacotherapy applied was focused on comorbid conditions, and not on the tics. Remission followed after one year of treatment.
