The clinical presentation of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) can often simulate an acute myocardial infarction (AMI), presenting with precordial pain or dyspnea, de novo electrocardiographic (ECG) modifications and raised cardiac biomarkers [ 1 , 2 , 3 ]. Pathogenesis and therapy of this disease are still controversial [ 4 , 5 , 6 , 7]. During the acute phase, when patients are admitted to coronary care unit, it is very important to discriminate between these two conditions, in order to provide the appropriate treatment strategy.
