Nonparkinsonian tremors

Clin Neuropharmacol. 2000 Sep-Oct;23(5):233-8. doi: 10.1097/00002826-200009000-00001.


Tremors other than those associated with Parkinson's disease are commonly encountered in clinical practice. The differentiation of tremor subtypes depends primarily on the presence of distinct clinical characteristics and is facilitated by the use of consistent nomenclature. Such differentiation can be helpful in determining the etiology of the tremor and assist in its management. In this review, the authors outline recently proposed changes to classification and review the clinical features, differential diagnosis, and current therapy for nonparkinsonian tremors.
