Introduction: The importance of obstructive sleep apnea in patients undergoing surgery with general anesthesia is well-defined, but the surgical and anesthetic implications of other sleep disorders are less clear. We sought to evaluate response to surgery with general anesthesia in patients with central disorders of hypersomnolence or restless legs syndrome. Methods: We surveyed patients on their most recent surgical procedure with general anesthesia, querying about procedure, recovery, and any changes in sleep disorder symptomatology following the procedure...

Kleine-Levin syndrome (KLS) is a rare, relapsing-remitting disease that affects mostly adolescents. It is characterized by episodes lasting from 1 to several weeks, and comprises neurological (hypersomnia, confusion, slowness, amnesia) and neuropsychiatric symptoms (derealization and apathy). Some psychiatric symptoms (megaphagia, hypersexuality, anxiety, depressed mood, hallucinations, delusions) arise during episodes, albeit less frequently, while patients are normal between episodes. However, sudden severe (>18h/day of sleep) and recurrent hypersomnia helps to differentiate KLS from other psychiatric mimics...

OBJECTIVE: To retrospectively compare the benefits (episode cessation) and risks of IV methylprednisolone (IV-MP) vs abstention during prolonged Kleine-Levin syndrome (KLS) episodes. METHODS: A total of 26 patients with KLS received 1 g/d IV-MP for 3 days during 1 to 6 episodes each (totaling 43 IV-MP sessions). The change of episode duration with IV-MP (vs previous episode duration) was compared with the change duration between 2 consecutive episodes in 48 untreated patients matched for age, sex, age at KLS onset, number of episodes, and disease duration (more treated than untreated patients had long episodes)...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To highlight and critically discuss the possibility that breathing abnormalities during hypersomnolent episodes are an additional clinical feature of Kleine-Levin Syndrome (KLS). RECENT FINDINGS: A computerized literature search of breathing abnormalities in patients with KLS disclosed two old and a single recent publication describing a total of six patients with sleep apnea during hypersomnolent episodes. SUMMARY: Owing to scarce reports on complete polysomnography during and in-between hypersomnic episodes of KLS, the possibility that breathing abnormalities are an additional clinical feature of this unique episodic sleep syndrome should be further studied...

Kleine-Levin syndrome (KLS) is the commonest recurrent sleep disorder, with a prevalence of 1-2 per million population. Clear diagnostic criteria are now defined, but effective treatment remains elusive. The significant body of published literature allows consideration of possible aetiological mechanisms, an understanding of which could guide the development of therapeutic strategies. Functional imaging studies have been inconclusive; although diencephalic abnormalities are a common finding, no consistent pattern has emerged, and these studies have not revealed the mechanism(s) underlying the development of the abnormalities detected...

Kleine-Levin syndrome (KLS) is a rare sleep disorder mainly affecting teenage boys in which the main features are intermittent hypersomnolence, behavioral and cognitive disturbances, hyperphagia, and in some cases hyper sexuality. Etiology is unknown, and there is no specific clinical or imaging test for this syndrome even though the illness has well-defined clinical features. Also, there is no effective treatment for KLS. KLS is self-limited, so the prognosis for these patients is not so bad. This study presents our case report and comprehensive workout that led to diagnosis which is primarily clinical...

PURPOSE: Kleine-Levin syndrome (KLS) is a rare, relapsing-remitting, debilitating sleep disorder. Examining KLS characteristics in different ethnic populations may help elucidate the genetic basis of the disorder. No studies have examined KLS in Arabs. Therefore, we compared the clinical characteristics of Saudi Arabian KLS patients to those in other published cohorts to determine whether Arab patients have a distinct phenotype. METHODS: This study included all patients who were diagnosed with KLS at our center between June 2003 and July 2016 (P = 12; Six familial cases)...

Kleine-Levin syndrome (KLS) is a rare disorder (around 1.5 cases per million population), often presenting with triad of recurrent episodes of hypersomnia, hyperphagia, and hypersexuality. However, cases of atypical KLS with features opposite to that being commonly reported are often misdiagnosed as psychosis and present as a diagnostic challenge for the physicians, psychiatrists, and neurologists. We describe a case of atypical KLS which was misdiagnosed as unspecified nonorganic psychosis previously, highlighting the various points which would be helpful in identifying and diagnosing cases of atypical KLS in future...

Kleine-Levin syndrome is a rare neuro-psychiatric disease. Most of the young patients are males who present with hypersomnia, cognitive dysfunction, altered perception, eating disorder (e.g. hyperphagia) or disinhibited behaviour (e.g. hypersexuality). Psychiatric symptoms such as apathy, delusions and hallucinations, depressed mood and compulsive behaviours also appear often and result frequently in a psychiatric referral. These symptoms, however, should be distinguished from those of psychiatric diseases as early as possible in order to ensure that patients do not receive the wrong treatment...

Kleine-Levin syndrome (KLS) is a rare disorder characterized by episodic hypersomnia along with cognitive and behavioral disturbances (i.e., hyperphagia and hypersexuality). It is commonly seen in a young male. Not much is known about its long-term management; however, many reports suggest the usefulness of anticonvulsants and lithium for the same. We hereby report a case of childhood KLS from India who was successfully treated with low-dose lithium and discuss the relevant literature.

Kleine-Levin syndrome is a rare sleep disorder of unknown etiology characterized by repetitive episodes of hypersomnia between asymptomatic periods. We report the case of a 13-year-old girl who presented with drowsiness triggered by influenza A as the first episode. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on day 6 showed transient reduction of diffusion in the corpus callosum splenium. The patient was diagnosed with encephalopathy with a reversible splenial lesion. The symptoms resolved after 10 days, but additional episodes of hypersomnia lasting 5-10 days occurred 1, 5, 6, 11, 13, and 25 months after the first episode...

Since 1962, when Critchley and Hoffman coined the term Kleine-Levin Syndrome (KLS) for the triad of hypersomnia, excessive eating and "often abnormal behavior" which they have observed in 11 adolescent boys, the number of patients recognized with this rare syndrome expanded, the spectrum of the clinical presentation, disease course, prognosis, gender specificity and the presence of familial cases were established. However, in spite of the progress made in neuroscience, the search for the cause, neuroanatomy, pathophysiology and drug treatment of KLS is still ongoing...

INTRODUCTION: The Kleine-Levin syndrome is a rare disease of unknown origin characterized by recurrent and self-limited episodes of hypersomnia that are also accompanied by a cognitive and behavioral dysfunction. Patients present normal sleeping and behavior patterns between episodes. CASE REPORTS: We present three patients who are 14 years old: two boys and one girl. They started having the episodes after a predisposing factor (vaccine, influenza B and menstruation)...

We report the case of a 14-year-old girl with clinically diagnosed Kleine-Levin syndrome. Electroencephalogram and brain MRI were unremarkable. An FDG PET/CT scan was acquired during a symptomatic episode, while she was asleep, and another PET scan was obtained when she was asymptomatic, awake, and quiet. Comparison of both examinations demonstrated a bilateral activation of thalami, caudate nuclei, and lenticular nuclei. These findings may be linked to the implication of thalamostriatal structures in the regulation of sleep and wakefulness...
