Abstract

Because there are many young women between the ages of 12 and 25 years who have been diagnosed with postural orthostatic syndrome (POTS), with the time to the diagnosis of about 5 years, it is important for health care providers to have an understanding of the clinical presentation of POTS to manage the diagnosis appropriately. The purpose of this article is to present a case study review of an adolescent woman who experienced POTS syndrome at age 16 years and to provide a clinical overview of POTS in the adolescent population.
