Abstract

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.
