Dubai hospital praised for diagnosing rare brain disease

A government hospital in Dubai has received international recognition for correctly diagnosing a patient with a rare brain disease.

After conducting several tests, doctors at Rashid Hospital concluded that the 37-year-old patient had Huntington’s disease – a condition with a prevalence of one in 30,000.

It affects a person’s functional abilities and usually results in a reduction in motor-skills and psychiatric disorders.

The patient, who was previously misdiagnosed at other medical facilities, is now being treated at Rashid Hospital’s Neurology Department.
