The clinical manifestations and laboratory are similar to syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH). It is easy to be misdiagnosed.
Case description and management: In this paper, the clinical data of one case of cerebral salt wasting syndrome was diagnosed. By given fluid and sodium replacement, the condition can improve quickly. Through analyzing and reviewing related literature, the understand of diagnosis and treatment of cerebral salt wasting syndrome can be improved.
Conclusions: The main clinical manifestations of cerebral salt wasting syndrome are hyponatremia, high urine sodium, diuresis, hypovolemia. Cerebral salt wasting syndrome in children has very high risks and we should improve the understanding. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment are very important.
