Abstract

A 63-year-old white female who was being treated for hypertension with lisinopril presented with seizures, altered mental status, and a serum sodium of 101 mEq/L. Serum sodium prior to initiation of lisinopril therapy was 137 mEq/L. The hyponatremia was corrected and did not recur after lisinopril was stopped. The hyponatremia may have been a result of polydipsia and inappropriate antidiuresis secondary to ACE-inhibitor therapy.
