ABSTRACT
We report a rare case of multiple sclerosis(MS) with hypothalamic lesions. A 33-year-old man with long history of MS was admitted with acute hypersomnia. He did not have sleep paralysis, hypnagogic hallucination, or cataplexy. Brain MRI showed a new plaque in both hypothalamus and thalamus. Polysomnography revealed severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. On the multiple sleep latency test(MSLT), average sleep latency was 54 seconds and there were noted 3 SOREM(Sleep Onset REM) on 5 trial. His sleepiness improved following treatment with steroid and methylphenidate. 4 month later, follow-up polysomnography and MSLT were performed. There were no differences in API during full night polysomnography but no SOREM in MSLT was observed.
Keywords: narcolepsy | multiple sclerosis | polysomnography | multiple sleep latency test(MSLT)
