Tactile aversion in infancy.


Twenty children referred for assessment of delay in gross motor development showed tactile aversion. This is a common cause of delay in motor development and may be misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy or as a global developmental retardation. In some infants feeding is a problem. Although the condition is self-limiting, many patients need orthopaedic treatment for abnormalities of foot posture when they start to walk.
