Myoclonic epilepsy in infancy

Myoclonic epilepsy in infancy

This 3-year-old boy with normal development had brief bilateral myoclonic jerks of the upper limbs. Benign myoclonic epilepsy in infancy was diagnosed, and valproate monotherapy led to a good outcome. (Courtesy of Professor Edouard Hirsch from: The Educational Kit on Epilepsies.
