condition characterized by tremor of hands, head, vocal chords, and sometimes other parts of the body. It is sometimes mistaken for Parkinson's disease.
A disorder that causes shaking of the voice. This tremor is not associated with any other disease state, such as the tremor associated with Parkinson's Disease. Vocal fold vibration is normal, but the entire larynx shakes slightly, causing an extra vibration, or tremor, at about 5-7 cycles per second. Term found in Types of Voice Disorders: Benign Essential Tremor.
A neurologic movement disorder characterized by involuntary fine rhythmic tremor of a body part or parts, primarily the hands and arms (upper limbs). In many affected individuals, upper limb tremor may occur as an isolated finding. However, in others, tremor may gradually involve other anatomic regions, such as the head, voice, tongue, or roof of the mouth (palate), leading to difficulties articulating speech (dysarthria). Less commonly, tremor may affect muscles of the trunk or legs.
Also called familial or essential tremor (ET). A condition more common than PD, which often includes bilateral tremor of the hands, head tremor, and a tremulous quality to the voice.
A condition characterised by tremor of the hands, head, voice, and sometimes other parts of the body. Essential tremor often runs in families and is sometimes called familial tremor. It is sometimes mistaken for a symptom of Parkinson's . However, this is an action tremor and there is no rigidity or bradykinesia.
A tremulous disorder commonly, attributed to Parkinson's disease ( Ch. 28).
