To the Editor We read with interest the article by Aquino et al1 in JAMA Neurology. This article described the possibility of restless genital syndrome (RGS) in a patient with Parkinson disease who presented with symptoms of daily discomfort in her genitals and pelvic region for 3 years. On further evaluation, gynecological examination was normal and polysomnography showed the absence of abnormal leg movements with disturbed sleep. Pramipexole was helpful in controlling her symptoms.
