Essential tremor: occupational exposures to manganese and organic solvents.

Occupational exposures to manganese and organic solvents cause parkinsonism as well as prominent action tremor, resembling essential tremor (ET), yet their association with ET has not been studied. These chemicals cause cerebellar pathology. Cerebellar changes have been linked with ET. Using lifetime occupational histories, the authors demonstrated that occupational exposures were similar in cases and controls, which does not support an etiologic link between occupational exposures to these chemicals and ET.[1]
