Tremor associated with benign IgM paraproteinaemic neuropathy successfully treated with gabapentin



We describe a 76-year-old patient with a severe tremor due to chronic demyelinating neuropathy associated with a benign IgM paraproteinaemia that was successfully treated with gabapentin. The patient reached the full dose of 1,200 mg/day of gabapentin without side effects and showed a significant therapy-related improvement of tremor and disability, as judged by the Fahn Tolosa Marin Rating Scale. © 2001 Movement Disorder Society.
