Disorders causing secondary tics can be divided into congenital and acquired types. The former include dominantly and recessively inherited neurological disorders in which tic occasionally occurs.

Many older descriptions refer to tic-like movements in conditions that are now recognized as primarily choreic, dystonic, myoclonic, and the like. If vocalizations occurred in such. One important, but underreported, phenomenon in Tourette syndrome (TS) is the occurrence of "tic attacks."
