To evaluate the accuracy and quality of Korean videos associated with restless legs syndrome (RLS) on YouTube.
A YouTube search was performed on April 1, 2020 using the term “restless legs syndrome” in the Korean language. Two reviewers coded the source, content, and demographics of the included videos. Video quality was assessed using the modified DISCERN (mDISCERN) instrument.
Among the 80 videos analyzed, 44 (55.0%) were reliable, and 36 (45.0%) were misleading. There was a trend toward a higher number of mean daily views in the misleading videos than in the reliable videos. Most of the misleading videos (72.2%) advocated complementary and alternative medicine as a primary treatment for RLS. Although the reliable videos had higher mDISCERN scores than the misleading videos, the overall quality of the reliable videos was low.
Many Korean videos regarding RLS on YouTube involve a risk of exposure to misinformation and are of unsatisfactory quality.

AbstractAbstract PDF

Although vascular chorea often comes into remission spontaneously, a few patients may remain with persistent movement disorder. Most movements respond well to neuroleptics as well as other antidopaminergic drugs, but some patients show poor responses to those neuroleptics. Topiramate is a widely used of broad-spectrum anticonvulsant possessing a complex mechanism of action. It has been proven to enhance gamma-aminobutyrate acid activity and to be effective in the control of other movement disorders. We describe a 63-year-old woman with intractable vascular hemichorea which was controlled with anti-convulsant, topiramate.
