Degeneration of paramedian nuclei in the thalamus induces Holmes tremor in a case of artery of Percheron infarction.
 

Author(s): Tz-Shiang Wei, Chun-Sheng Hsu, Yu-Chun Lee, Shin-Tsu Chang

Journal: Medicine (Baltimore). 2017 Nov;96(46):e8633.

 

Holmes' tremor is an uncommon neurologic disorder following brain insults, and its pathogenesis is undefined. The interruption of the dento-rubro-thalamic tract and secondary deterioration of the nigrostriatal pathway are both required to initiate Holmes' tremor. We used nuclear medicine ...
