Abstract

Background: Takotsubo Syndrome (TS) is an acute and reversible wall motion abnormality of the left or right ventricular myocardium, most commonly induced by emotional or physical stress. Mood and anxiety disorders are the most common mental triggers to TS.

Objective: The relationship between psychotic affective disorders and Takotsubo syndrome has been described very rarely.

Methods: The authors describe the case of a 55-year old woman with a previous history of depression and alcohol abuse, who presented to the emergency department with an acute psychotic episode that triggers an asymptomatic Takotsubo Syndrome.

Results/Conclusions: The authors wants to alert to the atypical presentation of TS and the multidisciplinary management crucial to favorable outcome.
