Abstract

Insomnia is a condition which affects millions of individuals, giving rise to emotional distress, daytime fatigue, and loss of productivity. Despite its prevalence, it has received scant clinical attention. An adequate evaluation of persistent insomnia requires detailed historical information as well as medical, psychological and psychiatric assessment. Use of a classification system for sleep disorders and familiarity with major diagnostic groups will facilitate the clinician's evaluation and treatment. Thorough assessment also requires attention to the unique aspects of presentation and specific set of etiologies which are associated with particular age groups.
