Intention Tremor

Overview

    • Look For

    • Tremor that increases with target-directed movement.
  • This is best demonstrated with the finger-nose test, where the patient is asked to use their index finger to touch their nose and then your finger. Their finger will tremor increasingly as it approaches its target.
    • Significance

    • Cerebellar disease in the form of stroke, tumour or multiple sclerosis.
