Abstract

We describe a patient with palatal tremor (PT) as a manifestation of focal seizure caused by acute cortical infarction. Brain MRI showed acute infarction in the left precentral gyrus without evidence of brainstem lesions or hypertrophy of the inferior olivary nucleus. We discuss the differences between our patient and previous reports of symptomatic PT and the mechanisms involved in the development of PT associated with cortical lesions.
