Case report

Narcolepsy in children with a psychiatric disorder

D. De Man, D. Deboutte, S. Bal, E. Van Den Haute, A. Degels, K. Dhondt

To interpret these problems correctly one needs to conduct a multimodal investigation at three levels: internal, psychiatric and neurological. On the basis of a case study we discuss the differential diagnostic considerations for narcolepsy and a diagnostic protocol for children.
