Background: Physical examination findings of dystonia are often underrecognized, especially in the setting of other movement disorders such as essential tremor (ET).
Phenomenology Shown: A patient with ET exhibited numerous textbook features of cervical dystonia, which were misattributed to ET by a primary care physician and two neurologists.
Educational Value: To provide a clear and unmistakable visual example of the clinically significant characteristics of cervical dystonia in the setting of concomitant ET.
