Abstract
Restless legs syndrome(RLS) is a common but frequently undiagnosed sensorimotor disorder. It has distinct clinical manifestations and also it is fairly common in late adulthood. However, it is rarely recognized in children because of the difficulties in expressing the signs and symptoms and the lacks of experience of pediatricians about the disease. Although its underlying pathophysiology is not fully understood, the diagnostic criteria of RLS in children were established in the year of 2003. We experienced a case of idiopathic restless legs syndrome in a 10-year-old boy and we present the case with a brief review of related literature.
Key Words: Idiopathic restless legs syndrome, Children
