Abstract

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) has only been recently investigated in a small cohort of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) patients and it has been reported to have variable prevalence (among 3.7-58%). However little is known about its management. Here, we report a case of severe RLS occurring during the course of PSP. Diagnostic issues and therapeutic approaches are discussed.
