Abstract: 

Objectives: Introducing a new perspective on sleep state misperception, a case with sleep state misperception and ultimately diagnosed as a delusional disorder is represented.
Method: A 60-year old woman with chief complaints of insomnia, agitation, and suicidal ideation, was admitted to an in-patient psychiatric ward. Based on information from her family and a mental state examination, her primary diagnosis was sleep state misperception. She was treated with Trazodone. Because she was unresponsive to the treatment, a full psychiatric evaluation and wrist actigraphy report were undertaken, resulting in a revised diagnosis of delusional disorder. She was started on Olanzapine (2.5 mg twice a day).
Results: Taking Olanzapine, slow improvement was observed and after six weeks she was discharged with no more insomnia symptoms.
Conclusion: Sleep state misperception might be considered not just as a sleep disorder, but also a psychiatric disorder with psychotic symptoms. Further research is recommended.
