REM Behavior Disorder (RBD), Idiopathic Complex Nocturnal Visual Hallucinations Disorder (CNVHD), Sleep Related Hallucinations, Parkinson's Disease, Neurodegenerative Disorders, Lewy Body Dementia
Medicine and Health Sciences
This is a case study of Idiopathic REM Behavior Disorder (RBD) lasting 5 years with superimposed Idiopathic Complex Nocturnal Visual Hallucination Disorder (CNVHD).
The coexistence of these two distinct idiopathic sleep disorders has not been reported in the literature, even though they both carry similar etiologies and strong association with neurodegenerative diseases. Greater awareness, education, and further research are warranted.
