Abstract

Pallidotomy remains as a treatment option in Parkinson's disease (PD) with unilateral disabling dyskinesia and tremor, though deep brain stimulation of GPi and the other targets largely replaced ablative surgeries because of reversibility. Here, we present an illustrative rare case, a 65-year-old man with PD, at whom his unilateral parkinsonian tremor was totally recovered after stroke limited to lentiform nucleus.
