The syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) is a common medical illness which has many etiologies-some of which are particular to psychiatric patients. This review will discuss the diagnosis of SIADH and then the various etiologies for its development with emphasis on those which are more relevant to psychiatric patients. Future research will be directed to a further understanding of this disorder, as well as to treatment options to decrease the significant morbidity associated with this condition.
