Tremor at Rest

  • Klaus Poeck


Tremor at rest occurs first in the most distal parts of the limbs. Frequently, it can be observed in the toes and in the fingers, and this has great diagnostic significance if one has to differentiate between organic and psychogenic tremor. The latter is not very likely to manifest itself in the lower extremities, because these have no expressive function as long as the patient is not walking about.
