Although briefly covered in neurology texts, until now there has been no professional-level publication dedicated solely to restless legs syndrome (RLS). Most of what is available is either out-of-date or too general. Written by a panel of experts, Restless Legs Syndrome fills the void. Focusing on diagnosis and management, the authors discuss the epidemiology, pathophysiology and its clinical associations, and clinical features of RLS. They also explore how to correctly diagnose the many different types of patients who present with this disorder. The book's discussions of the wide range of treatment options available gives clinicians the information they need to formulate appropriate pharmacological or non-pharmacological therapeutic regimens.
