Abstract

Syncopal episodes are frequent in adolescence. Syncope is usually a benign, self-limiting condition but it may be a warning sign of serious disease that must be diagnosed and appropriately treated. The present article provides a review of the basic principles of the differential diagnosis of syncope in the adolescent patient and treatment recommendations.
