In this issue of the journal, Hassan and Caviness reviewed the controversial topic of slow orthostatic tremor (OT). Based on their review of the relevant literature, Hassan and Caviness concluded that “multiple lines of evidence separate slow OT from classical OT,” but they also noted that “clinical and electrophysiologic overlap may occur.” We were invited to discuss the significance of this overlap within the context of tremor classification.
