Stress-induced cardiomyopathy, also known as takotsubo cardiomyopathy
, is classically characterized by a stress-induced transient left ventricular apical systolic dysfunction, electrocardiographic (EKG) abnormalities, and modestly elevated cardiac enzymes, mimicking myocardial infarction, but in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD).

We report a patient with sepsis-triggered Takotsubo cardiomyopathy

High levels of circulating epinephrine trigger apical cardiodepression in a [beta]2-adrenergic receptor/ Gi-dependent manner: A new model of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy
is not rare in critically ill patients as another type of RWMA; the pathophysiological mechanism and clinical features are different from those of ACS.
or Kounis syndrome or both?
(TCM), also known as stress cardiomyopathy, is a type of nonischemic cardiomyopathy, in which there is a sudden temporary weakening of the muscular portion of the heart.
Pseudoinfarct patterns on electrocardiogram mimicking myocardial infarction are seen in clinical conditions like pericarditis, myocarditis, ventricular aneurysm, takotsubo cardiomyopathy
, early repolarization, and cardiac memory.
