Transient Resolution of Bilateral Tremor After Unilateral Thalamotomy Associated With Focal Injury of the Corpus Callosum: Case Report
We present a patient with Parkinson's disease whose bilateral tremor transiently resolved after a unilateral left ventrolateral thalamotomy. The transient resolution of the bilateral tremor was associated with a focal thalamic lesion and a second lesion in the corpus callosum. The mechanism of this phenomenon may be related to temporary disruption of descending bilateral corticostriate projections by the callosal lesion.
