Infantile progressive bulbar palsy is a rare type of progressive bulbar palsy that occurs in children. The disease exists in both rapid and slow onsets, and involves inflammation of the gray matter of the bulb.[1]

Infantile PBP is a disease that manifests itself in two forms: Fazio–Londe syndrome (FL) and Brown–Vialetto–Van Laere syndrome (BVVL).[2]
