Interesting genetic study involving families and twins to seek hidden heritability shared by these two conditions. Partitioning the Heritability of Tourette Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Reveals Differences in Genetic Architecture (http://www.plosgenetics.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pgen.1003864)

Since it's in PLoS, you can see the whole thing, and it also covers some information about the difficulties in narrowing down genetic risk factors in general.
