Falls and Delirium: Platypnea-Orthodeoxia Syndrome


An 85-year-old woman's inability to remain standing was ultimately connected to an undiagnosed congenital defect. The patient was admitted to the geriatric unit of a university hospital for new frequent falls and subacute delirium, both of which began 1 month before presentation. Her medical history included ischemic stroke 10 years earlier, mild neurocognitive impairment, and Von Recklinghausen neurofibromatosis with isolated skin involvement.
