To the Editor In their Grand Rounds article, Drs Elias and Shah1 defined tremor “as a rhythmic and involuntary movement of any body part.”
They listed dystonic tremors but noted that these are irregular (not rhythmic), and they excluded clonus, which is a rhythmic and involuntary movement. Could Elias and Shah provide a definition that is consistent with their categorization?
