A new case study supports the theory that restless genital syndrome is a variant of RLS, reports Medscape.

In a report published online October 6 in JAMA Neurology, researchers discussed a woman with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and disabling genital discomfort who had a dramatic response to the dopamine agonist pramipexole (0.25 mg at night).

“Our paper describes a patient who previously might have been considered to have something totally different,” study coauthor Anthony Lang, MD, director, Division of Neurology, University of Toronto, and director, Movement Disorder Center, University Health Network, Toronto Western Hospital, Ontario, Canada, told Medscape Medical News.
