Essential tremor is the most prevalent form of movement disorders in the world and is 10 times more prevalent than that of Parkinson’s disease. Even though it is traditionally considered as a benign disease all the patients of essential tremor have tremor induced disabilities. Essential tremor which shows kinetic, postural and resting is tremor mimicker of all tremor associated disease so often misdiagnosed and mismanaged. This article is authors’ endeavor to summarize the facts in different publications on essential tremor. Electronic databases like MEDLINE/Pub Med, Google Scholar, IMSEAR (Index Medicus for South-East Asia Region) and Scopemed were extensively searched with MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) terms “essential tremor”, “clinical features” “pathophysiology” and “treatment” from the earliest possible date of 1966 to Feb 2017. Articles in any languages especially those published in recent years were given preference. This review deals mostly with the clinical features and evidence-based management of essential tremor.
