This review summarizes the current empirical and clinical literature on benign paroxysmal movement disorders in infancy most relevant to practitioners. Paroxysmal benign movement disorders are a heterogeneous group of movement disorders characterized by their favourable outcome. We pay special attention to the recognition and management of these abnormal motor conditions strongly suggestive of epileptic disorders. They include: neonatal jitteriness; benign neonatal sleep myoclonus; benign paroxysmal tonic upgaze; paroxysmal tonic downgaze, benign paroxysmal torticollis and benign polymorphous movement disorder of infancy.
