In reply to Curious story on Dateline NBC--Klein-Levin Syndrom, posted by Noa on October 25, 2000, at 15:58:37

Hi Noa,

Didn't see the story. Found a report (Brussels, Belgium) describing how the use of melatonin (with lithium) alleviated the KLS symptoms in a 28-year-old man. It has been hypothesized that KLS is related to bipolar disorder.

KLS is complex and rare, primarily affects adolescent males, and is characterized by recurrent attacks of hypersomnia, excessive eating, and striking behavioral and psychiatric symptoms.
