AbstractA 78-year-old woman was admitted to hospital with central chest pain and the electrocardiographic and cardiac marker changes typical of acute anterior myocardial infarction. Coronary angiography revealed normal epicardial coronary arteries, and left ventriculography showed apical akinesis as well as basal hyperkinesis. This is a case of transient left ventricular apical ballooning or takotsubo cardiomyopathy, possibly attributable to catecholamine-mediated myocardial stunning.
