Abstract: Introduction: Gallbladder carcinoma has been associated with various paraneoplastic syndromes. These may be the presenting manifestations that lead the clinician to a diagnosis. Case Report: We report a case of small cell gallbladder carcinoma complicated by paraneoplastic hyponatremia. The hyponatremia was further exacerbated by platinum-based chemotherapy. Discussion: There have previously been no reports of paraneoplastic hyponatremia in gallbladder carcinoma. We discuss the management of this problem and also provide a short literature review on the other paraneoplastic syndromes associated with gallbladder carcinoma. Conclusion: Symptoms and signs of gallbladder cancer may be insidious. Thorough workup is needed if the patient presents with symptoms and signs of a paraneoplastic syndrome. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
