Abstract

Cerebral salt wasting (hyponatraemia associated with renal sodium loss and hypovolumia) has been reported secondary to intra-cerebral pathology and following certain infections. Cerebral salt wasting following typhus infection has been reported rarely. We report a case of transient cerebral salt wasting that occurred during the convalescent phase of scrub typhus infection resulting in severe symptomatic hyponatraemia.
