1837

The first case was reported in 1837 by Magnus. The syndrome was described by Foix Chavany et Marie in 1926 1) , and called SFMC by Weller (1993). His literature review of 62 SFMC allowed the differentiation of five clinical types: the classical and most common form associated with cerebrovascular disease, a subacute form caused by central nervous system infections, a developmental form, a reversible form in children with epilepsy and a rare type associated with neurodegenerative disorders 2).
