Intention Tremor

April 18th, 2019


  • 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.
