Background Restless legs syndrome [RLS] is known as a disease of iron and dopaminergic dysregulation but inflammatory processes might also have a role in the pathogenesis. In this study, we compared the circulating levels of hsCRP, IL-1 beta, IL-6, and TNF-alpha in patients with primary restless legs syndrome [RLS] and healthy control subjects.
