Abstract

Sleep disorders have been identified by experts and coded in The International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ICSD) [1]. This classification is the current primary diagnostic, epidemiological, and coding resource for clinicians and researchers in the field of sleep and arousal disorders and sleep medicine worldwide. The third edition of the ICSD (ICSD-3) sorts the sleep disorders into several categories, of which insomnia is the most common in the general population and in adults with cancer. Sleep-related breathing disorders and sleep-related movement disorders often occur in the general population, but little is known about their prevalence in adults with cancer.
