ABSTRACT
Sleep related rhythmic movement disorder (RMD) is characterized by repetitive, stereotyped, and rhythmic motor behaviors that occur predominantly during drowsiness or sleep and involve large muscle groups. RMD is typically seen in infants, and very rare in old age. We report a case of RMD developed in old age.
Keywords: Rhythmic movement disorder | Parasomnia | Elderly patient.
