Abstract

Although parasomnias are ubiquitous in childhood and occur across all ages, this is the first publication to focus on this topic in detail. In its first section, the basic, translational, and clinical background of parasomnias is reviewed. In the second section of the book, the clinical aspects of the disorders of arousal that commonly occur in children, including confusional arousals, sleepwalking and sleep terrors, are discussed. The third section deals with the parasomnias usually associated with REM sleep. The fourth section deals with a group of parasomnias under the group heading of "other parasomnias". The fifth section deals with sleep-related movement disorders and other variants that are often included in the differential diagnosis of the parasomnias. The sixth section discusses the pharmacologic, behavioral and psychiatric management of the parasomnias.
