In brief: BNSM

It is a benign condition and once the diagnosis is firmly established, it requires no treatment and generally disappears within the first year of life with only a few reports of it continuing longer into infancy, but not beyond.
There are no known permanent complications. A main goal is early diagnosis to prevent unnecessary extensive medical diagnostics that can be expensive/disruptive to family.
