A 70-year-old man had complained of excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue for 3 years. He underwent an overnight polysomnography followed by a multiple sleep latency test which showed central sleep apnea with Cheyne-Stokes breathing (CSB) pattern. Further evaluation including magnetic resonance imaging of the brain could not find any cause of this sleep-disordered breathing. We describe the rare case of idiopathic central sleep apnea presenting as CSB pattern.
