Abstract

Painless arms/moving fingers is a rare variant of the painful limbs/moving extremities syndrome (PLME) characterized by slow involuntary movements of the toes or fingers. Its typical form is associated with limb pain. We report the first case of painless arms/moving fingers and describe its favorable response to botulinum toxin A injections. The presence of dystonic symptoms in our case argues in favor of a possible implication of a dystonic mechanism in at least some cases of PLME.
