Anxiety, mood, and other emotional symptoms have been described in patients with Tourette's disorder (TD) for many years. In 1899, in “LaMaladie des Tics Convulsif,” the first scientific paper on behavioral and emotional aspects of Tourette's syndrome, de la Tourette described “fears, phobias, and arithmomania” in his original report on nine cases (1). In Studies on Hysteria, Freud described facial tics and nervousness in Frau Emmy Von N, who may have had TD, and, in 1907, in Tics and Their Treatment, Meige and Feindel described a patient with Tourette's disorder who probably had both obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and depression (2, 2a).
