The authors identified patients with the coexistence of narcolepsy and another CNS disorder seen between 1975 and 1998 at their institution. Eighteen patients were identified, nine with narcolepsy commencing within 1 year before or after the other disorder. Seven patients (39%) had hypothalamic-pituitary syndromes. When they occur together, narcolepsy and other CNS disorders frequently emerge at about the same time, suggesting a causative relationship. Hypothalamic-pituitary pathology was the most common association.
