  • DSM-5 Diagnostic Criteria For Tourette Disorder

    The diagnostic criteria for Tourette Syndrome have been modified with the publishing of the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - (DSM-V) 2012, published by the American Psychiatric Association, Washington D.C., the primary diagnostic reference of Mental Health professionals in the United States and Canada.

    Diagnostic Criteria
    Note: A tic is a sudden, rapid, recurrent, nonrhythmic motor movement or vocalization.

    Tourette’s Disorder 307.23 (F95.2)
    A. Both multiple motor and one or more vocal tics have been present at some time during the illness, although not necessarily concurrently.
    B. The tics may wax and wane in frequency but have persisted for more than 1 year since first tic onset.
    C. Onset is before age 18 years.
    D. The disturbance is not attributable to the physiological effects of a substance (e.g., cocaine) or another medical condition (e.g., Huntington’s disease, postviral encephalitis).


    Persistent (Chronic) Motor or Vocal Tic Disorder 307.22 (F95.1)
    A. Single or multiple motor or vocal tics have been present during the illness, but not both
    motor and vocal.
    B. The tics may wax and wane in frequency but have persisted for more than 1 year since first tic onset.
    C. Onset is before age 18 years.
    D. The disturbance is not attributable to the physiological effects of a substance (e.g., cocaine) or another medical condition (e.g., Huntington’s disease, postviral encephalitis).
    E. Criteria have never been met for Tourette’s disorder.
    Specify if:
    With motor tics only
    With vocal tics only

    Provisional Tic Disorder 307.21 (F95.0)
    A. Single or multiple motor and/or vocal tics.
    B. The tics have been present for less than 1 year since first tic onset.
    C. Onset is before age 18 years.
    D. The disturbance is not attributable to the physiological effects of a substance (e.g., cocaine) or another medical condition (e.g., Huntington’s disease, postviral encephalitis).
    E. Criteria have never been met for Tourette’s disorder or persistent (chronic) motor or vocal tic disorder.
