Abstract

Benign infantile myoclonus (BIM) generally appears at around the 5th- 7th month of life in subjects which do not present other neurological signs and disappears after the 12th month. The case of an infant affected with neurofibromatosis type 1 who showed BIM together with a severe form of epilepsy (infantile spasms) is described. Drugs succeeded in controlling the seizures and also reduced the incidence of BIM. This last phenomenon became again evident when the level of drugs was decreased.
