of it. A tumor or an infarct in the striatum (caudate or putamen) can cause acute unilateral chorea (hemichorea). Sydenham chorea and chorea due to infarcts of the caudate nucleus often lessen over time without treatment. Chorea due to hyperthyroidism or another metabolic cause (eg, hyperglycemia) usually lessens when thyroid function or blood glucose level is normalized. Chorea in patients > 60 should be thoroughly evaluated to identify the cause (eg, toxic, metabolic, autoimmune, paraneoplastic). Chorea (...)

, dermatomyositis, myasthenia gravis, polymyositis, Kawasaki disease, and Sydenham’s chorea. Each of the autoimmune conditions was investigated by one study, except for dermatomyositis and myasthenia gravis which were investigated by two and three studies, respectively. Overall, considering the limitations in the study designs, reporting of outcomes, limited sample sizes, and risk of bias, there is limited evidence to suggest that off-label IVIG is clinically effective for the treatment of autoimmune diseases

in his honour, devotees would dance so joyously that Vitus became the patron saint of dancers, actors, and people with epilepsy, whose convulsions were regarded as a form of dancing. St Vitus’ dance was then applied to the specific form of disorder otherwise known as chorea (Greek χορεία, dance) or Sydenham’s chorea, to distinguish it from other forms, since it was first described by Thomas Sydenham in Schedula Monitoria de Novis Febris Ingressu (1686): “Cuius rei experimentum a me factum in medium (...) profero, nempe in quadam Convulsionis specie quæ Chorea Sancti Viti vulgo appellatur” (“I experimentally demonstrate [the effects of venesection and purgation] in that type of seizure commonly called St Vitus dance”).

that polyarthralgia is almost always a symptom of an illness other than ARF and favored retaining polyarthralgia as a minor manifestation for low-risk populations, as per the historic Jones criteria. The inclusion of polyarthralgia as a major manifestation is applicable only for moderate- or high-incidence populations and only after careful consideration and exclusion of other causes of arthralgia such as autoimmune, viral, or reactive arthropathies ( ) (Class IIb; Level of Evidence C ). Chorea (Sydenham Chorea (...) ). Clinical Manifestations of ARF Generally, the clinical profile of ARF in low- and middle-income countries closely resembles that of high-income countries. Universally, the most common major manifestations during the first episode of ARF (the “major criteria” for diagnosis) remain carditis (50%–70%) and arthritis (35%–66%). , , , These are followed in frequency by chorea (10%–30%), which has been demonstrated to have a female predominance, and then subcutaneous nodules (0%–10%) and erythema marginatum
