Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report on a case of diaphragmatic flutter (belly dancer syndrome) in the paediatric population. A 14 year old boy was admitted because of involuntary movements in the upper abdomen. He had a past history of recurrent middle ear infections and had been operated on with insertion of bilateral tympanostomy tubes at the age of 8. The 20-25/min frequent abdominal wall movements had started two months before. He could suppress the contractions for only a few seconds at a time. The clinical examination was otherwise normal and he had no other symptoms. The episodes were video recorded. © 2012 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica © 2012 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.
