Abstract

Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte abnormality in hospitalized patients and often presents no symptoms. The association between sinus node dysfunction and hyponatremia has rarely been reported. We describe a 77-year-old woman who developed reversible sinus node dysfunction accompanied by pulmonary edema that was associated with hyponatremia.
