Abstract


Restless genital syndrome (RGS) is a rare disorder with unpleasant sensation in the genital area and unwanted sexual arousal. Only a few cases of RGS have been reported, so we presented four cases of RGS. Four cases were all middle-age female, and was commonly complaint paresthesia on their genital area and unwanted sexual arousal. The typical symptoms of restless legs syndrome (RLS), affecting on their lower extremities were accompanied. RGS is difficult to diagnose because it presents ambiguous sensations that are difficult to describe, along with embarrassment in reporting sexual feelings. Clinicians should be aware of the genital discomfort and sexual arousal that can develop in RLS.
