Welcome to the Sydenham’s Chorea Association

We are a group of patients, parents and health care professionals all working to provide information and support to those affected by a Sydenham’s chorea (also known as Chorea Minor or Rheumatic chorea), a rare but treatable condition mostly affecting children.  

Our mission is to support patients and families by offering quality information on the condition, educational events and a FaceBook support group.
We support and promote research projects, together with specialists from international academic and clinical centres. We invite you to support us through JustGiving
We welcome questions or suggestions about what other support we can offer in the future. Contact us!
We welcome new volunteers wishing to get involved in our activities and are eager to collaborate with people or groups anywhere in the world, who are interested in the condition. Currently we collaborate with  a group in Italy.
We are unable to provide any direct medical advice or diagnosis, for which we would recommend you contact your family doctor,  general practitioner or Consultant.
