TakotSubo Cardio Myopathy (TSCM) is a reversible form of cardiomyopathy characterized by transient left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction. Clinically often mimics acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with chest pain or breathlessness with electrocardiographic, cardiac marker(s) and LV wall motion abnormalities. In a third of patients, significant emotional or physical stress precedes the presentation. Often, these patients have normal epicardial coronaries or non-flow obstructive coronary disease. In most patients, LV function shows complete recovery within weeks with favorable outcomes. We report a unique case of TSCM following sudden emotional stress with typical transient apical ballooning; nevertheless, with severe co-existent triple vessel coronary artery disease and complete recovery of cardiac function on medical management.
