"NARCOLEPSY1"

By C. WORSTER-DROUGHT.

=

As the name implies (Gk. νάρκη stupor λαμβάνειν = to seize), narcolepsy is a condition which is characterised by recurrent states of sudden and profound sleep.

The condition appears first to have been described by Gélineau (9) in 1881, under the name of 'la narcolepsie'; he considered it a rare neurosis in which the outstanding feature was a sudden and irresistible desire to sleep, the period of slumber being usually of short duration. Gowers (10) considered the term best applied to a condition in which the patient showed recurrent attacks of apparent sleep, varying in duration from a few minutes to a few hours, and from which he or she could be roused with comparatively little effort; on the other hand, he distinguished 'trance' and 'lethargy' from narcolepsy in that the sleep of the former states was more prolonged and the patient could be roused only imperfectly and with extreme difficulty, while 'catalepsy' was accompanied by that plastic state of the limbs known as 'flexibilitas cerea' or katatonia. The distinctions between these closely allied conditions, and especially between narcolepsy and lethargy or trance, is somewhat artificial, as in many cases which otherwise fulfil the definition of narcolepsy, the patient cannot be roused during the attack; similarly many examples of so-called trance have a recurrent tendency. Later authors-Ballet (3), Féré (7), Lamarcq (16), Achard (2), and others have employed the term narcolepsy to include all states of paroxysmal sleep, and it is in this sense that I am using it in the present communication.

Symptoms. The characteristic feature of narcolepsy is the occurrence of paroxysms of diurnal sleep in the midst of whatever occupation the patient may be engaged. The attack may occur suddenly under any conditions, seizing the patient while walking or eating, while actively engaged in mental work, conducting business, or playing at a game. One of Robin's cases-a medical man-often used to fall asleep when walking, while in the daily press of March 22nd, 1921, there was reported an inquest on a man aet. 60, held at Newport, Mon., at which the evidence
