Abstract

We describe and present a video of a 20-year-old woman with Wilson's disease (WD) who developed the painless variant of painful legs and moving toes (PLMT) syndrome. The symptoms appeared during a subsequent minor exacerbation of her extrapyramidal symptomatology, only to gradually disappear 3 to 4 months later. We suggest that, in our case, a structural central nervous system lesion caused by WD may have been associated with the development of PLMT.
