From Crashing Waves to Crashing Sodium: A Rare Case of Nearly Asymptomatic Severe Hyponatremia.
Hyponatremia refers to an abnormally low serum sodium level, and it is the most common electrolyte disorder encountered in the clinical setting. Despite its prevalence, hyponatremia can be challenging to clinically identify in some cases due to non-specific symptom presentation. In this case report, we illustrate the rare clinical course of a nearly asymptomatic patient with severe hyponatremia and discuss potential explanations for this uncommon presentation.
