Restless legs syndrome can be diagnosed by clinical criteria of the international restless legs syndrome research group. However, if the diagnosis is unclear, polysomnography could be needed. Restless legs syndrome can be often accompanied with periodic limb movement on polysomnography. On the other hand, for the diagnosis of periodic limb movement disorder, polysomnogeraphy is mandatory. This article summarizes recent reports about polysomnography with restless legs syndrome and periodic limb movement disorder.
