Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte balance disorder, especially in the elderly and polymedicated population. The authors report the case of an 83-year-old man with symptomatic severe hyponatremia due to Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone Secretion (SIADH) related to pantoprazole. Pantoprazole was discontinued and serum sodium levels reached normal values in two months. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the second reported case of pantoprazole-related hyponatremia and, while most patients with hyponatremia related to proton pump inhibitors have mild symptoms, this patient had severe manifestations.
