Narcolepsy is characterized by the classic tetrad of excessive daytime sleepiness, cataplexy, hypnagogic hallucinations, and sleep paralysis. Note that this tetrad is seen only rarely in children. The term "narcolepsy" is derived from Greek, "seized by somnolence." Gelineau was the first to delineate the syndrome in 1880.
