Abstract

Tremor is a frequent patient complaint in the neurologist's office. Nevertheless, despite the routine nature of this office presentation, misdiagnosis of common tremors is not an infrequent practice. In addition, there are less common causes of tremor that can be missed if the clinician is not aware of key features. An organized and methodical history and neurologic examination are essential in developing the differential diagnosis in tremor patients and ultimately in achieving the correct diagnosis. Awareness of key historical features associated with tremor and knowledge of the movement disorders examination will improve tremor assessment.
