Narcolepsy is a common sleep disorder with a prevalence of about 0.02%. However, it may remain largely unrecognized in the Indian population owing to the perceived low prevalence. To the best of our knowledge there is only one case of narcolepsy reported from India so far. We present a case of narcolepsy with cataplexy with classical clinical and polysomnographic findings of narcolepsy.
