I'm not real sure what your asking. If your trying to put a description in your case notes but don't want to give the disease a name, then yes, you can say it is degenerative brain disease or to name it or identify it as possible ( Huntington's Disease).  

Huntington's disease primarily affects the corpus striatum, a region of the brain below the surface of the cerebral cortex that helps to regulate movement, emotion and cognition.  This is a degenerative brain disease and sounds like what you have described above.  What did her referral say?  If your trying to make a diagnosis or fill in that part of your chart and want to say its degenerative brain disease because you think it is, then I would make sure there has been enough tests to back it up.

I hope this can help and I'm sorry you didn't get an answer sooner. I didn't see your post until today. If I didn't understand your question correctly, repost and I can try again.
