Carotid sinus syndrome is the most commonly reported cause of falls and syncope in elderly adults. However, it has been rarely reported in Koreans, and the reason of this ethnic difference is unknown. We report here on an Korean unusual case of carotid sinus syncope and this was induced by carotid sinus massage. (Korean Circ J 2008;38:561-563)
