Swallow syncope is a relatively rare disorder caused by a hypersensitive vagotonic reflex in response to deglutition, and is treatable when diagnosed. Here, we describe two documented cases of recurrent syncopal attacks associated with swallowing, and also discuss about some difficulties in the precise diagnosis and treatment of swallow syncope.
