Rhythmic movement disorder is a parasomnia that is difficult to treat. In our study, 3 weeks of controlled sleep restriction with hypnotic administration in the first week resulted in almost complete resolution of the movements in 6 children. This therapeutic success suggests that rhythmic movement disorder results from a voluntary self-soothing behavior.
