In brief: Movements.

Huntington disease (hd) is autosomal dominant, which means there is a 50/50 chance an affected parent will pass the condition to any one of their children.
The main symptoms of hd are involuntary dance-like movements known as chorea, and problems with thinking and memory later in the course of the disease.
