Lyme borreliosis presenting as hypersomnia


Dalal, M A; Wehrle, R; Beitinger, P A; Wetter, T C (2010). Lyme borreliosis presenting as hypersomnia. Somnologie, (14):67-69.

Abstract

Hypersomnia is known to be associated with symptoms, such as excessive daytime sleepiness, headache, and decreases in vigilance. We report for the first time a patient who initially presented with symptoms for idiopathic hypersomnia but after a thorough diagnostic evaluation was diagnosed as suffering from Lyme disease. This finding stresses the need to potentially include diagnostic tools, like lumbar puncture, in diagnostic procedures, in order to rule out inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system mimicking hypersomnia symptoms
