Signs and symptoms of Kleine-Levin disorder are intermittent. In some instances, the signs linked with Kleine-Levin disorder at some point vanish with progressing age.

It is believed that signs of Kleine-Levin disorder could be associated to breakdown of the section of the mind that assists to control features such as physical body, cravings, and also rest temperature level (hypothalamus). Some scientists hypothesize that Kleine-Levin disorder could be an autoimmune problem.
