Department of Neurology and Polyclinic specialize in diagnosing and treating of neuro-muscular, degenerative, demyelinative and movement disorders as well as other neurological conditions. Patients with such conditions as: Huntington or Parkinson diseases, multiple sclerosis, miastenia, amytropic lateral sclerosis or others are treated here. In the out-patient clinics and at the emergency ward citizens of Warsaw and surrounding area are attended here. What is more, the department serves as the place where medical students attend their neurology classes. Huntington disease patients may be provided here with (among others):
imaging procedures (computed tomography scans, magnetic resonace imaging),
genetic tests in individuals with symptoms suggestive of Huntington disease to confirm or reject the diagnosis, as well as in their relatives, who want to know whether they carry the mutation or not (it is performed in cooperation with the Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology in Warsaw),
information about the condition, including the most recent discoveries about its causes and treatment as well as genetic counseling,
care in out-patient clinic for movement disorders.
Registry Initiative of the European Huntington Disease Network aims in the collection of detailed clinical data on Huntington disease and information regarding the course of the disease, its influence on patient, his family and care givers. This anonymous database may be used by medical doctors to conduct investigation on the cause of the condition, means of its farmacological and physiotherapeutical treatment, psychological and other non-medical support.

The investigation holds place in the Department of Neurology, building D, VIIIth floor. We kindly ask for bringing all the medical documentation (not only this refering to Huntington disease), especially the result of your genetic test; also a list of all medicines used previously and at the moment would be useful. The first meeting lasts about 4 hours. Blood and urine samples are taken. If only it is possible, the patient should stay without eating and drinking for about 6 hours (it is advisable to take lunch with you).
