Re-Emergent Tremor of Parkinson's Disease Masquerading as Essential Tremor

Morgan, Sarah; Louis, Elan D.

Background: The re-emergent tremor of Parkinson’s disease (PD) is generally recognized as a postural tremor.

Phenomenology Shown: A PD patient with a re-emergent tremor occurring during a task (spiral drawing), which on the surface produced a tremor that resembled that of essential tremor (ET).

Educational Value: Researchers and clinicians should be aware of features of this re-emergent tremor to help distinguish it from that of ET.
