Syncope is common in clinical practice, but the cause is often difficult to diagnose. We report a 75-year-old man who was referred to the emergency department because of syncope after an urgent sensation of urinating during jogging. He was finally diagnosed as having a giant bladder diverticulum due to prostatic hyperplasia accompanied by neurally mediated syncope. Excessive urinary retention is a possible cause of not only giant bladder diverticula but also syncope due to vagal enhancement.
