Two case reports: night terrors with sleepwalking--a potentially lethal disorder.

Abstract

Two cases of severe night terrors with sleepwalking in adults are described. In one of these, an episode resulted in three deaths; in the other, there was serious concern of death and bodily harm. Both men were employed, married, and functioning well without serious psychopathology. Neither could be given a definite DSM-III diagnosis, though both had some features of compulsive personality disorder. Both improved considerably with treatment.
