Huntington’s disease (HD) and multiple sclerosis (MS) are two neurodegenerative diseases for which different pathologies and limited commonalities have been described. Here, we report the second case in the literature of comorbid MS and HD. When comorbidity occurs between rare diseases, shared pathological pathways may be suspected and common genetic or environmental triggers can be hypothesized to ultimately advance the understanding of the two diseases.
