A case of Gilles de la Tourette disorder, diagnosed at the Mental Health Department of «Paquito Gonzalez Cueto» University Pediatric Hospital in Cienfuegos is presented. Aspects related to pathogeny of this disease which confirm the theories that consider this as a neuropsychiatric disorder are dealth with, and on this basis, a successful psycho-pharmacological therapy is recommended. The paper shows the comorbidity with compulsive obsesive disorder and the need of taking it into account when studying disorders that develop with unvoluntary movements.
