BACKGROUND: Although a central role of the thalamus for sleep regulation is undisputed, the exact localization of the crucial structures within the thalamus remains controversial.

CASE PRESENTATION: Here we report a 35 year old woman with no prior comorbidities who developed severe and persistent hypersomnia with long sleep time after a small right-sided MRI-verified thalamic stroke affecting the dorsal part of the pulvinar and the dorsolateral boarders of the dorsomedial nuclei.

CONCLUSION: The observed symptoms suggest a crucial role of posterior thalamus but not the midline parts of the thalamus in sleep-wake control.
