Mentions: Fall of sudden onset can be associated with or without loss of consciousness. Falls with loss of consciousness can be due to syncope or nonsyncopal conditions like metabolic disorders including hypoglycaemia: hypoxia, epilepsy, and intoxications. Falls without loss of consciousness can be due to cataplexy, drop attacks, psychogenic “syncope” (somatization disorders), and transient ischaemic attacks (Figure 3).
