International conference on tremor in Budapest

On 10 and 11 November an international congress on Tremor took place in Budapest, Hungary.  Several lectures were given concerning the origin, clinical characteristics and treatment of different types of tremor.

Prof. dr. De Koning-Tijssen gave a lecture on movement disorders that are not tremor, but resemble it strongly. These 'tremorlike' movement disorders have a different pathophysiology and need different therapies.  Jonathan van Zijl and Gerrit Kramer both presented a clinical case of two rare forms of tremor. They paid specific attention to the treatment of these tremor-syndromes, so that lessons were learned for clinical practice.
