Nocturnal bruxism in a patient with Behçet disease and posttraumatic stress disorder successfully treated with gabapentin.Clin Neuropharmacol. 2014 Nov-Dec; 37(6):190-1.CN
Bruxism is an involuntary movement, including teeth grinding and clenching, which occur primarily during sleep. Although Behçet disease and posttraumatic stress disorder both have a high prevalence of sleep problems, bruxism is extremely rare in these 2 disorders. Here, we report a rare case of concurrent Behçet disease and posttraumatic stress disorder, which presented with antidepressant-refractory sleep disturbance accompanied by teeth grinding, clenching, and snoring that was successfully treated with gabapentin.
