Girl Slept For 64 Days: Disorder Turns Teen Into Real-Life 'Sleeping Beauty'

EXAMINER.COM - A girl who slept for 64 days is being compared to a real-life sleeping beauty after appearing on "The Jeff Probst Show" to discuss a condition known as Kleine–Levin syndrome, KLS, or Sleeping Beauty syndrome, which causes her to sleep excessively. During her longest sleeping episode, 17-year-old Nicole Delien slept nearly non-stop from Thanksgiving until the following year and missed all the holiday festivities.

The girl who slept for 64 days has two younger siblings, a brother and a sister. Fortunately, they do not suffer from the condition.
