E.S. Nikiforova, O.V. Sanyk, M.Yu. Delva

Abstract


The article presents three clinical cases of benign fasciculation syndrome. The main causes, pathogenetic mechanisms, clinical and electromyographic picture, differential diagnosis and treatment options of benign fasciculation syndrome were discussed. We proposed an algorithm for the management of patients with benign fasciculation syndrome.
