    Introduction Orthostatic tremor is a rare tremor syndrome triggered exclusively by standing, with pathognomonic neurophysiological features. More recently, it has been suggested that orthostatic tremor can present either in isolation (pure orthostatic tremor) or associated with other movement...

    Tremor in Parkinson's disease has several mysterious features. Clinically, tremor is seen in only three out of four patients with Parkinson's disease, and tremor-dominant patients generally follow a more benign disease course than non-tremor patients. Pathophysiologically, tremor is linked to...

    Approximately 10% of patients diagnosed clinically with early Parkinson's disease (PD) have normal dopaminergic functional imaging (SWEDDs—scans without evidence of dopaminergic deficit). A subgroup of SWEDDs are those with asymmetric tremor resembling parkinsonian tremor. Clinical and...

    Since the first description of the disorder which we now call “Parkinson’s Disease” (PD) much has changed not only because of new therapeutic possibilities. Initially only the rest tremor was described. Today it is generally accepted that PD can be accompanied by different...

    Mixed-type tremors pose a clinical diagnostic challenge. The aim of the study was to better characterize patients with combined postural and rest tremor. Patients were categorized into four groups: essential tremor (ET) ( n = 7), combined rest + postural tremor ( n = 17), PD ( n = 17), and...

    Tremor is considered to be a clinical sign of patients with chronic lead exposure. However, the type of tremor and its pathophysiological mechanisms are controversial. The aim of this study was to examine the clinical and electromyographic characteristics of tremor in patients with chronic lead...

    Postural abnormalities are clinical syndromes that lead to disability in patients with Parkinson's disease. The aim of the study is to investigate the characteristics of postural control in different clinical forms of Parkinson's disease using a computer stabilometer examination. Materials and...

    Background: Unilateral hand tremor is one of the cardinal symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, mechanical traumatic hand movement is one of the risk factors for carpal tunnel syndrome. Our objective in this study was to examine whether repetitive mechanical movement may be...
