Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is an unusual disorder of autonomic dysfunction. Healthy patients with long-standing unexplained symptoms, like presyncope, chronic fatigue and sinus tachycardia, are easily misdiagnosed and mistreated. We are discussing the case of a 38-year-old female patient posted for knee arthroscopy for medial meniscus tear, who was first suspected to have this unusual disorder of the autonomic nervous system inside the operation theatre. A cautious observation and evaluation can help in reducing the morbidity and mortality associated with autonomic disorders.
