Abstract

Osmotic demyelination syndrome is classically associated with rapid correction of hyponatremia. However, it can occur in normonatremic patients with other electrolyte abnormalities. One must suspect osmotic demyelination syndrome in susceptible patients with other electrolyte abnormalities like hypokalemia and hypophosphatemia.
