Phenomenology Shown: We describe a 14-year-old female showing a typical example of head banging at onset of sleep.
Educational Value: Sleep-related rhythmic movement disorder usually has a benign and self-limiting nature and medication might only be warranted in cases of severe sleep disruption or frequent injuries.
