In brief: Hard to say

This controversial condition occurs in kids with normal immune systems more often than not.
A simple elevation of aso titer can occur in random populations without problems. Some, not all, neurologists accept this as a real but hard to define entity, not exclusive to strep reactions.Some use the label for any tic disorder with elevated titer.Confirmation and workup by a pedi neuro would be ideal.
