Hypotonia is a common abnormality of the motor system in infancy. The etiology of infantile hypotonia spans the entire neuraxis from the brain to the muscle fiber. This article provides an overview of the many different causes of neonatal hypotonia and summarizes the classical clinical findings, appropriate evaluation, and prognosis for some of the most common causes of hypotonia.
