The syndrome of Inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) Is a disorder In which a sustained release of antidiuretic hormone occurs because of certain diseases, pharmacological agents, or trauma. Fluid volume expands with a resultant hyponatremia which, depending on the degree, may be asymptomatic or result In death. This case report describes a 38‐year‐old male in whom SIADH was strongly suspected secondary to Tegretol therapy to control a seizure disorder. Medical consultation Is imperative for these patients before administering a fluid challenge during general anesthesia.
