Abstract

Conclusion

The semiological recognition of the patterns of abnormal movements and the model of evolution help the etiological diagnostic, the history taken from patient and family and the videos being very useful for identifying correctly the abnormal movement. In approaching a child with movement disorder we should think simple, in well defined steps, starting from simple investigations and moving forward in an individualised manner. Early diagnosis might allow early treatment, anticipatory management of complications, sometimes improving outcome and ultimately the quality of life and also would allow in a number of cases genetic advise for the affected families.
