Quality of life in patients with orthostatic tremor.

Abstract:
We assessed health-related quality of life (QoL) and depression, using the SF-36 and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), in 20 orthostatic tremor (OT) patients. All dimensions of the SF-36 were markedly reduced in OT and depression was found in 11 patients. The BDI score correlated significantly with several SF-36 subscores. We conclude that OT strongly impacts on QoL. The results highlight the importance of recognizing and treating depression in patients with OT.
