Sheehan’s syndrome (SS) occurs due to ischemic pituitary necrosis after severe postpartum hemorrhage. The clinical spectrum of SS is wide and changes from non-specific complaints such as weakness, fatigue, and anemia to severe pituitary insufficiency including secondary adrenal failure and hypothyroidism resulting in coma and death. We present a case of Sheehan’s syndrome who had recurrent hyponatremia episodes due to the late diagnosis of the disorder.

Keywords: Sheehan’s syndrome, postpartum hemorhage, recurrent hyponatremia
