juvenile form

Another term for juvenile Huntington’s disease, which is a form of Huntington’s disease with an onset before age 20. Juvenile HD is caused by the same gene as the adult form of the disease, but its symptoms are different. Common symptoms include rigidity, seizures, and dementia. Also referred to as early-onset HD.
