Case Study
The article presents several case studies that exemplify prototypical presentations of tremor, which is one of the most common movement disorders. It mentions the case of a mid-30s with fine tremor of the hands, with increased appetite and palpitations. Another case of a 77-year-old woman was also presented with a 20-year of history involving both hands combined with shaky voice. It has further ruled out that asymmetric resting tremor is the hallmark of Parkinson's disease.
