Narcolepsy and psychopathology. A case report.


The case of a 14-year-old girl presenting with the association of a clearcut narcoleptic syndrome and psychiatric disturbances is reported. Tricyclic anti-depressant drugs and hypnagogic hallucinations seem to play a precipitating role on delusional episodes in a predisposed subject with a positive psychiatric familial history.
