Preview

Case 34 introduces a 35-year-old man who presented to the sleep clinic reporting violent behaviors in sleep for 15 years. Medical history reports both legs fractured as a result of jumping from an upper floor window at home whilst sleepwalking, one febrile seizure at age three, and several concussions during his teen-aged years, none with loss of consciousness. He had been diagnosed with depression several years prior to presentation and was taking quetiapine and nefazodone with relatively good control; he had abused drugs and alcohol as a young adult, but had been free of substances for years.
