Abstract

A 71-year-old man had a writing tremor for 19 years. He had been diagnosed as having Parkinson's disease and received anti-parkinsonian drugs, although he had no rigidity, bradykinesia, or resting tremor. Since the tremor, but not dystonia or cramp, appeared only when the patient was writing, and responded well to combined therapy with propranolol and oxazolam, it was considered a primary writing tremor.
