Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common disorder, often
associated with sleep disorders. Patients with primary sleep disorders often
present hyperactivity and/or attention deficit symptoms. Indeed, obstructive
sleep disorder breathing (snoring, hypoventilation disorder, and obstructive
sleep apnea syndrome) with poor sleep quality can mimic ADHD in children. In this
case, inattention and hyperactivity behavior are induced by sleep disorders but
do not constitute a clinical diagnosis of ADHD. Therefore, it can sometimes be
difficult for the clinician to distinguish between a diagnosis of ADHD with
comorbid sleep disorder and a sleep disorder that mimics ADHD symptoms. The
objective of this article is to review the relations between ADHD and obstructive
sleep disorder breathing and propose a decision tree to help diagnosis.
