Article title

Indapamide-induced hyponatremia or the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion: a case report


Title variants

Languages of publication



We report a case of an apparently well-documented indapamide-induced hyponatremia. The initial diagnosis was made on the basis of dechallenge and rechallenge performed on two occasions. Further course of the disease, which proved inconsistent with our expectations, prompted us to look for another aetiology leading to the final diagnosis of the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH) complicated by indapamide treatment.
