Familial aggregation of cranial tremor in familial essential tremor.
 

Author(s): Elan D Louis, Nora Hernandez, Lorraine N Clark, Ruth Ottman

Journal: Neuroepidemiology. 2013 ;41(1):48-53.

 

Essential tremor (ET) is often familial and phenotypic features may be shared within families. Cranial (neck, voice, and jaw) tremor is an important feature of ET. We examined whether cranial tremor aggregates in ET families, after controlling for other factors (age, tremor severity, and duration).
