Infantile hemifacial spasm.

Abstract

A 6-week-old infant had recurrent contractions of the facial musculature on the left side, which continued throughout early childhood. Surgical exploration at 5 1/2 years of age revealed a ganglioneuroma of the fourth ventricle. Hemifacial spasm (HFS) in infancy and childhood suggests the possibility of serious intracranial pathologic findings.
