Abstract

Paroxysmal non-epileptic disorders may cause episodic and paroxysmal symptoms that mimic true epileptic seizures and they must be considered in the differential diagnosis. Paroxysmal movement disorders are not uncommon in infants, but are probably under-recognised. These phenomena represent various clinical situations, characterised by intermitted and episodic disturbances of movement. Clinical experience and a detailed history and careful observation with video recording are often helpful to establish the correct diagnosis. In the large majority of the cases, paroxysmal movement disorders are benign situation. Most of the time, no treatment will be required, and the families will be informed of the good prognosis. These disorders in infants are discussed in the present review.
