Abstract
Progressive ataxia and palatal tremor (PAPT) is a subgroup of symptomatic palatal tremors which is characterized by palatal tremor and idiopathic progressive cerebellar ataxia. Here, we report a 59 year-old-male who presented with a 5 months history of progressive cerebellar ataxia, and was discovered to have both a symptomatic palatal tremor and torsional nystagmus. Various studies searching for the cause of the ataxia and the palatal tremor all came out negative, thus defining this patient as a PAPT.KeyWords:Palatal tremor, Cerebellar ataxia
