Seizures as a manifestation of syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion


Differential diagnostics of epileptic paroxysms is often complicated and requires a multidisciplinary approach. Clinical presentation of epileptic and non-epileptic paroxysms is polymorphic and correct diagnosis requires clear understanding of semiotics and etiology of these conditions. The article presents a clinical case of a complicated course of the intermediate period of TBI with SIADH and seizures which mimic posttraumatic epileptic seizures.
