185 Possible Causes for Action and Postural Tremor

  • Polyneuropathy

    This bilateral hand tremor was of similar magnitude at rest, on posture, and on action (see Video 1, Segment 1).[movementdisorders.org] Though the patient was satisfied with the extent of strength and ambulatory improvements, she became disappointed by the insidious emergence of a disabling tremor within 4[movementdisorders.org] The tremor was jerky, fluctuating in severity, frequency, burst duration, and pattern of muscle groups involved, exhibiting an alternating activation of antagonistic forearm[movementdisorders.org]

  • Essential Tremor

    Examination revealed subtle dystonic features as well as a disabling postural-action tremor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Essential tremor (ET) is among the most common neurological movement disorders that causes postural or action tremors, with an estimated prevalence nationwide of less than[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The characteristic tremor seen in ET is postural and action tremors, with a frequency of 4-7 Hz.[movementdisorders.org]

  • Primary Orthostatic Tremor

  • Klinefelter Syndrome

    While postural and action tremor are more frequent in KS patients than in the general population [ 2 ], these patients are generally already diagnosed with KS by the time[omicsonline.org] These difficulties may be associated with mirror movements and postural tremor ( Ross et al ., 2007 ).[dx.doi.org] Abstract Patients with Klinefelter syndrome have a higher prevalence of postural and action tremor that the general population, but are typically diagnosed before developing[omicsonline.org]

  • Posterior Cerebral Artery Thrombosis

    Contralateral rhythmic, ataxic action tremor; rhythmic postural or "holding" tremor (rubral tremor): Dentatothalamic tract.[fmritools.com]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

  • Hereditary Late-Onset Parkinson Disease

    It can be distinguished from Parkinson’s disease by 1) its low amplitude and higher frequency 2) Essential tremor manifests during posture and action as opposed to rest tremor[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Young-Onset Parkinson Disease

    An 8-12 Hz action (postural/kinetic) tremor of the upper extremities that is temporarily relieved by drinking alcohol is characteristic of essential tremor, whereas the presence[emedicine.medscape.com] The patient should be examined for evidence of parkinsonism (bradykinesia, rigidity, postural instability), dystonia, and other neurologic signs.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] pay particular attention to the body parts involved, positions/conditions in which the tremor occurs (ie, resting, postural, kinetic, intention), and the frequency of the tremor[emedicine.medscape.com]
