The findings of this case report do not answer the question of whether or not the slow wave discharge specifically represents a permutation of the K-complex. However, the slow wave discharge and the K-complex may be "bed partners" in part, with both residing in the same reticular activating system. It is therefore concluded that the reticular formation which harbors the arousal system also generates the slow wave discharges in this case. The discharge in turn activates the pain and other subsystems within the same reticular core to produce the associated somato-sensory, visceral and autonomic disturbances.
