Abstract

The alien hand syndrome is a constellation of signs and symptoms. No one sign or symptom, for example arm levitation, is sufficient to make the diagnosis. A thorough neurological history and examination are necessary to exclude disorders that may mimic the alien hand syndrome. The most common neurodegenerative disorder associated with the alien hand syndrome is corticobasal degeneration.
