A rare case of Kleine-Levin Syndrome

The story of a woman who sleeps for up to a week at a time:

Miss Hoyland, a 26-year-old youth charity worker, is one of only a handful of Britons to suffer a rare sleep disorder which can cause her to stay in bed for up to a week at a time . . .

. . . Dozing fits can come on suddenly in the middle of the day, when she is rendered incapable of speaking, sinking into a trance-like state before falling asleep.
