Abstract Benign myoclonic epilepsy of infancy is recognized as a generalized and idiopathic epilepsy by the International League Against Epilepsy. Unprovoked and reflex seizures have been reported in these patients. We describe a child diagnosed with benign myoclonic epilepsy of infancy, whose strictly unilateral and localized reflex myoclonias broaden the clinical spectrum of this idiopathic and generalized epileptic syndrome, and raise interrogations about its underlying pathophysiological mechanisms.
