    I have a feeling that patients do not appreciate it being referred to as "Sleeping Beauty Syndrome"

    There must be a better way to diagnose obscure illnesses than word of mouth.

    No surprises there.

    Yes. The article says it's "incredibly rare" and most doctors apparently have not heard of it. We also do not know the cause or a treatment. These things combine to make it obscure.

    What is not obscure about this illness? I don't think it is a controversial term.

    Sounds a bit like encephalitis lethargica.
