Abstract

A 3-month-old girl with no past medical history presented with new-onset intermittent upbeat nystagmus. Episodes were triggered by movement into the supine position as well as by bright light flashes. They lasted a few seconds and were not associated with any distress. Neurological examination and work-up, including magnetic resonance imaging of the brain and abdominal ultrasonography, were normal. The eye movements completely resolved after 3 months.[Formula presented]
