Abstract

Palatal tremor, also known as palatal myoclonus, is characterized by rhythmic, unilateral or bilateral, palatal contractions which continue during sleep; this may be classified as a focal myoclonic syndrome. A distinction may be made between essential and symptomatic palatal tremor, also known as primary and secondary isolated palatal tremor.
