Kleine Levin syndrome is a rare syndrome that involves hypersomnolence, megaphagia and psychiatric disturbances of unknown etiology and pathogenesis. A 16-year-old male with tuberculous meningitis developed hypersomnia and megaphagia with cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showing increased T2 hyperintensity in the cerebral peduncles and left occipital cortex. Antitubercular therapy led to the disappearance of clinical symptoms and MRI changes.
