ABSTRACT
The article describes a case of an 83-year-old man with diabetes who was admitted for excessive daytime sleepiness afer he sustained a fall and concussion. According to the authors, electroencephalography showed a focal increase in amplitude and frequency over the central midline, suggestive of breach rhythm. They add that breach rhythm tends to develop over skull defects. They mention that a possible cause of excessive daytime sleepiness was due to postconcussion hypersomnia.
