Abstract Action myoclonus–renal failure syndrome (AMRF) is an autosomal recessive disorder first described in 4 French Canadian patients, followed by a recent description of 15 cases from various countries. The condition independently affects the kidney, with focal glomerulosclerosis causing renal failure and the brain causing progressive myoclonus epilepsy (PME) or progressive myoclonic ataxia (PMA). Tremor is often an early feature. The diagnosis of tremor and myoclonus in patients with severe renal disease is challenging. Here we highlight the evolution of tremor in this syndrome in two new cases and emphasize problems in early diagnosis. Copyright: ©2006AAN Enterprises, Inc.
