A rare tremor disorder in adults is often misdiagnosed as Parkinsonís or Alzheimerís. The disorder can be treated with some of the same medications as used for Parkinsonís and Alzheimerís.

The disorder is called Fragile x-associated Tremor/Ataxia Syndrome and has links to a common cause of child mental retardation.
