CMMD: Congenital mirror movement disorder is a condition in which intentional movements of one side of the body are mirrored by involuntary movements of the other side. This pattern of movements is present from infancy or early childhood and usually persists throughout life, without other associated signs and symptoms. Non congenital mirror movement disorder usually resolves by age 7.
