The treatment of Kleine-Levin syndrome with lithium.

Abstract

A case of Kleine-Levin Syndrome without megaphagia is described in an adolescent male who responded well to lithium treatment. Seventy-two hours of sleep monitoring during a typical attack revealed decreased stages three and four but no sleep-onset REM period. Recent reports, including the present one, strongly suggest that Lithium Carbonate may be the treatment of choice for the Kleine-Levin Syndrome.
