A novel degenerative process of the thalamus, red nucleus and connecting pathways

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Stephen McHanwell



A 51-year-old man presented with 7 year slowly progressive focal tremor affecting the left hand and arm. There were no associated neurological findings and no biochemical or genetic cause could be identified. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated extensive symmetrical abnormality involving the thalamus, red nuclei and associated pathways. This appearance has not, to our knowledge, been previously reported. We discuss the neuroanatomy involved and the possible aetiology for the MRI abnormalities. © Neuroanatomy.
