Context: Syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) is a common cause of hyponatremia. Although it has been associated with different pulmonary infections, there have been only few case reports describing the association of SIADH with influenza. Case Report: We report a case of SIADH in a patient with influenza who was successfully treated with fluid restriction. Conclusion: It is essential for clinicians to be aware of the association between influenza and SIADH.
