Sandifer syndrome is a rare manifestation of gastroesophageal reflux in children, occurring in association with abnormal movement of the head and neck and recurrent episodes of seizure after feeding. This syndrome may be misdiagnosed as infantile seizure and musculoskeletal disorder and may be associated with failure to thrive, anemia, aspiration pneumonia, and esophagitis. In this paper, Sandifer syndrome in a four months old male with recurrent aspiration pneumonia, apnea, and seizure after feeding is presented.
Key Words: Sandifer syndrome, Gastroesophaeal reflux, Seizure
