Answer

Diagnostic criteria for probable TS type G are as follows:

  • Type 1 fulfills all criteria for definite TS (first definition, A1) except for the third and fourth criteria

  • Type 2 fulfills all criteria for definite TS (first definition, A1) except for the first criterion; this type can be either a single motor tic with vocal tics, or multiple motor tics with possible vocal tic(s)

Diagnostic criteria for probable multiple tic disorder, or motor and/or vocal tics type H: This disorder fulfills all criteria for definite chronic multiple tic disorder (second definition) completely, except for the third and/or fourth criteria.
