ABSTRACT
After first diagnostic criteria development of narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia about 30 years ago, defining and classification of narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia are ongoing process in line with the recent understanding of these conditions. The most recent step forward has been done with the preparation of the second edition of “International Classification of Sleep Disorders” published in 2005. Narcolepsy was classified as narcolepsy with cataplexy, narcolepsy without cataplexy and narcolepsy due to medical condition, and idiopathic hypersomnia was classified as idiopathic hypersomnia with long sleep time and idiopathic hypersomnia without long sleep time. Further amendment for the classification and diagnostic criteria for narcolepsy and hypersomnia would be needed according to the refined clinical analysis and ongoing research.
