Tremor can be a complaint or sign indicating various underlying neurologic disorders. Progress has been made regarding our understanding of its pathophysiology, and the available options to treat tremor patients have increased. Nevertheless, important questions remain unanswered, such as the exact cause or origin of tremors.
