Good measure of ability to maintain consciousness during changes in posture is what is termed orthostatic tolerance. Patients with orthostatic intolerance developed symptoms ranging from fatigue, palpitation, dizziness, to syncope on assuming erect from supine position within a short period. Orthostatic intolerance commonly complicates upper spinal cord injury (above T6). Here, we present a case of orthostatic intolerance without significant tachycardia in patient with lumbar spondylolisthesis.
