Benign neonatal sleep myoclonus (BNSM), characterized by myoclonic jerks of the extremities only in non-REM sleep, occurs in the first months of life with spontaneous disappearance within 3-4 months. We examined five siblings with typical BNSM, at the 3-10 years follow-up neurological examination. Psychomotor development, cognitive functions and EEG were completely normal. These cases confirm that BNSM is a self limited and nonepileptic disorder.
