Pediatric parasomnias comprise a wide variety of often confusing behaviors during sleep. This article discusses the classification, differential diagnosis, and evaluation of some of the most common pediatric parasomnias. The characteristics that distinguish different parasomnias from more serious medical problems are addressed carefully. Treatment strategies with useful caveats are reviewed.
