Abstract

Statement of the Problem: Sleep disorders could be associated with neurological diseases. Obstructive sleep apnea is one of
the sleep disorders which is often underdiagnosed and undertreated. Obstructive sleep apnea was associated with increased
incidence of all tumor, especially brain tumor. We aimed to determine the incidence of brain tumor in patients with obstructive
sleep apnea syndrome.
Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: An observational descriptive study using questionnaire and polysomnography was
utilized during participant observation, in-depth interviews, and neurological examination.
Findings: In this study, the majority of patients in this study are men. We found obstructive sleep apnea patients with brain
tumor 75% and 25% without brain tumor.
Conclusion & Significance: Obstructive sleep apnea is associated with increased incidence of brain tumor. Recommendations
are made for hospital and treatment centers to observe the incidence of brain tumor in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
