We present the patient with Holmes tremor secondary to the infarction of thalamus, successfully treated with the deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the area between ventralis oralis anterior and zona incerta for a long time, in whom the severe tremor reappeared after removal of the DBS lead. This is the first presentation of the effective DBS on this location. Our case does not support the hypothesis that the DBS treatment could lead to sustained relief of symptoms after cessation of stimulation.
