Tourette syndrome with obsessive-compulsive disorder and disabling vocalizations

This 39-year-old college professor has a 2-year history of disabling, complex phonic and motor tics. He denies having tics when he was younger. The very loud involuntary vocalizations interfere with social and occupational activities. His findings are consistent with Tourette syndrome. (Contributed by Dr. Joseph Jankovic.)
