Another Case of "Shopping Bag" Tremor: A Difficult to Classify Action Tremor

Robakis, Daphne; Louis, Elan D.

Zesiewicz et al.1 reported an unusual case of unilateral wrist tremor that occurred while the patient carried a weighted object (e.g., a shopping bag) or made a fist, and suggested that this could be a form of isolated isometric tremor. Here we report another patient who presented with a phenomenologically similar tremor.
