Abstract

Essential tremor is the most prevalent movement disorder. This condition is often considered as benign but it can be the cause of considerable social, professional, and psychological handicap. It affects people of all ages but its prevalence increases with age (up to 5% of patients 65 or older). After discussing clinical aspects of this disorder, we review the current medical and surgical therapeutic options. Surgery may bring up spectacular improvement.
