    Restless genital syndrome (RGS) is a new definition in which awareness has begun to emerge in recent years. RGS is described as complex sensations of discomfort in the genital area, as itching, contraction, pain, and swelling in the absence of sexual stimulation. This condition, which may be quite uncomfortable for the patient, is hidden due to shame and not brought to the attention of physicians. Other problems that patients may encounter are that many physicians are inexperienced regarding such symptoms, that the family physician or the first physician does not know to which specialty they should refer patients with these symptoms, and that there is no clear consensus on treatment. Numerous etiologies, pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatment options have been discussed in the literature. We discussed two female patients who were diagnosed as having RGS and benefited from treatment. Copyright: © 2021 Turkish Neuropsychiatric Society.
