circadian rhythm sleep disorder

circadian rhythm sleep disorder
[DSM-IV] a sleep disorder of the dyssomnia group, consisting of a lack of synchrony between the schedule of sleeping and waking required by the external environment and that of a person's own circadian rhythm. It usually has an environmental cause such as rotating shift work or long-distance air travel, although some individuals simply have natural circadian rhythms sharply different from the predominant one of their society.
