Stereotypy related to blindness in Leber optic atrophy

This girl with congenital blindness due to Leber amaurosis exhibits body-rocking stereotypy probably related to her blindness. She has wandering and frequent upward deviation of gaze, often seen in the blind. She describes a need to frequently clear her throat (throat-clearing stereotypy).
