A 12‐year‐old boy with Reye's syndrome had an initial course complicated by increased intracranial pressure and systemic hypotension. He subsequently developed brainstem damage producing permanent apnea and a “locked‐in” state. Nevertheless, the normal architecture of sleep was retained, as was a high degree of intelligence.
