Multiple neurological deficits can occur in acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) but rarely movement disorders. A 24-year-old female patient was admitted because of tremor in bothupper limbs. After admission, her mental status progressively declined into coma. Brain magnetic resonance imaging and cerebrospinal fluid analysis were compatible with ADEM. Tests for central nervous system infection and autoimmune diseases were all negative. She was given steroid and IVIG, and the patient fully improved. We report here the first case of adult ADEM, who presented with tremor as the initial neurological manifestation.
