ROSANO, Sebastián et al. Severe hyponatremia and normotensive hydrocephalus in the adult: Report of a case. Arch. Med Int [online]. 2015, vol.37, n. 1, pp.15-17. ISSN 0250-3816.

We present a 62-year-old patient presenting with a two-month episode of headaches, disrupted behavior, symmetric tonic frontal syndrome and cerebellar syndrome associated with severe chronic hyponaetremia. The diagnosis upon admission was an inadequate anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) secretion syndrome secondary to normotensive hydrocephalus of the adult, clearly improving after the ventricular-peritoneal shunt. This case provides information on a rarely reported association.

Keywords : Hyponatremia; Normal-pressure hydrocephalus; Syndrome of inappropiate antidiuretic hormone secretion.
