ET is one of the most commonly encountered neurologic disorders in elderly individuals. The traditional view of ET as no more than a monosymptomatic condition of little consequence is being replaced. As with other progressive neurologic disorders of later life, ET may represent a family of related diseases rather than a single disease. A better understanding of the causes and mechanism of the disease will lead to advances in treatment development.
