Hyperkinesis in children, with their heterogeneity and polyetiology, is a common pathology of the nervous system in children and adolescents (up to 7%, M.B. Zucker, 1986). Displaying the functional state of the nervous system, they can manifest themselves against the background of negative emotions or nervous overstrain, but they can also be a manifestation of the organic pathology of various structures of the nervous system.
Hyperkinesis is considered as a pathological reflex that occurs as a result of a violation of the relationship of the extrapyramidal, pyramidal and afferent systems. Therefore, when assessing hyperkinesis, it is necessary to take into account the functional state of all parts of the nervous system. The problem of tic hyperkinesis is relevant for pediatricians, adolescent doctors, neuropathologists, and now family doctors. It requires further research on the etiology, pathogenesis, and clinical manifestations.
