Carotid sinus syndrome

Carotid sinus syndrome (CSS) is a group of clinical syndromes with spontaneous sudden dizziness, fatigue, tinnitus and even syncope. It was first reported by roskam et al in 1930. Then Weiss and Baker described 15 cases in detail and proposed that carotid sinus hypersensitivity was the cause of syncope, also known as Weiss Baker syndrome, or Charcot Weiss Baker syndrome.
