Psychogenic movement disorders (PMDs) are involuntary movements of various kinds without any underlying organic etiology. They can occur as tremor, spasm, dystonia, parkinsonism or myoclonus. A detailed history and neurological examination is essential to differentiate these disorders from organic neurological etiologies. Since PMDs are challenging entities in clinical practice, we presented this case of psychogenic tremor and gait disorder mimicking acute cerebellar syndrome in order to emphasize the importance of diagnostic clinical clues of PMDs in the differentiation of organic diseases, and to give accurate treatment.
