Infantile spasms, also called “epileptic spasms” or West Syndrome, is a type of epilepsy that tends to affect infants under the age of 2 years, and is characterized by clusters of peculiar seizures. These seizures—termed spasms—are involuntary and usually consist of a brief interruption of behavior, often with lifting and extension of the arms and bending forward at the waist. In many cases, this behavior is accompanied by a rapid and forceful drop of the head. Each cluster typically lasts a few minutes. There are many variations of this pattern. After individual spasms, children often cry. Clusters of spasms most often occur upon awakening, but can happen at any time of the day. A typical example is presented in the video below. For additional examples of infantile spasms, please see Infantile Spasms Project collection of videos.
