Huntington Disease Center’s clinical activities

The Huntington Disease Center’s clinical activities take place at the Huntington Disease Clinic. It is located at the Neurology department at Skåne University Hospital (SUS) in Lund (9th floor, elevator area 2). At the HD Clinic, the specialities of psychiatry, neurology, rehabilitation medicine and clinical genetics are co-operating. We provide information about the disease and the latest news about HD research. We offer genetic counselling before taking a genetic test. After having taken the genetic test we offer follow-up and, if needed, treatment.
We offer evaluation, treatment and follow-up with our psychiatrist and neurologist as well as with the multi-professional team that consists of a nurse, social worker, neuropsychiatrist, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, speech therapist and dietician. Although there are no treatments yet that modify disease progression, there is still a number of efficient medicines for different symptoms. The majority of the visits at the clinic are planned for Thursdays and Fridays. The multi-professional HD-team is led by professor and senior consultant in psychiatry, Åsa Petersén.
