D.A. Grimes
2003 Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences  
Tremor is a common movement disorder yet many physicians struggle with its terminology as well as with its treatment. Attempts have been made to develop standard terminology and criteria for tremors but this process continues to evolve. In this review, a summary of the currently-proposed phenomenology and syndromic classification of all types of tremor is presented. The diagnosis and management of essential tremor is presented in more detail, as it is the most commonly encountered tremor.
