    Tremor is one of the most frequent neurological signs; the diagnosis is mainly clinical. The most frequent tremor is essential tremor, which manifests itself as a postural and kinetic tremor. Tremor may occur not only in the hands, but also in the head and voice. Parkinsonian tremor is a tremor...
