Abstract

Sleep-related hallucinations (hypnagogic and hypnopompic) are transient and occur in normal individuals. Rarely, they are prominent and distressing and are associated with diverse conditions including narcolepsy. We report a case of prominent hypnopompic auditory hallucinations - which gradually became continuous and distressing with characteristics of schizophrenia-like hallucinations - that responded to a low dose of olanzapine.
