Hemifacial Spasm in Childhood Treated With Carbamazepine

Arch Neurol. 1974;31(1):63. doi:10.1001/archneur.1974.00490370089016

Hemifacial spasm is described in an 8-year-old boy, to my knowledge the first time the condition has been reported in childhood. The symptom resolved completely after treatment with carbamazepine.
