Sleeping Beauty Syndrome

Klein-Levin Syndrome or KLS is a rare syndrome that mostly happens to male. But this time, this 15-year-old pretty girl have this kind of disorder. She was known to be the real-life sleeping beauty. She sleep not just for hours but for days.

I first heard about this disorder through my colleague who graduated as a nurse. He said he has a friend who has KLS. There was a time that they were walking and talking and soon found out that his friend is already sleeping on the street. Scary, isn't it?

According to studies, when a person who has this syndrome wakes up, he/she is disoriented, lethargic and out of focus.

The cause of KLS in not known and there is also no specific treatment.

Here's the video of the Sleeping Beauty.
