Background: Primary writing tremor (PWT) is a rare condition; tremor occurs primarily while writing rather than during other tasks. Phenomenology Shown: We illustrate the phenomenology of PWT and point out associated subtle dystonic posturing on neurological examination. Educational Value: PWT is a tremor disorder that shares clinical features with both dystonia and essential tremor.
