Orthostatic hypotension in an octogenarian--an unusual presentation.
Bragg F., Kumar NP.
Orthostatic hypotension is a common problem in older adults and can be associated with falls, dizziness and syncope and their associated consequences. Therefore, it is important to recognise the condition and institute appropriate management. We report an elderly woman who presented with orthostatic hypotension and was found to have a rare, benign yet potentially fatal condition.
