Let G be a residually finite torsion group. We show that, if G has a finite 2-subgroup whose centralizer is finite, then G is locally finite. We also show that, if G has no 2-torsion, and Q is a finite 2-group acting on G in such a way that the centralizer CG(Q) is soluble, or of finite exponent, then G is locally finite.
