The Tako Tsubo syndrome or transient apical dyskinesia syndrome was first described in Japan in the 1990s1. Is a rare condition 1% of all the patients with suspicion of acute coronary syndrome2. It generally appears in post menopausal women with few cardiovascular risk factors3. It is characterized by anginal chest pain, electrocardiographic changes, elevation of the enzymes of myocardial injury2, no coronary obstruction on angiography and a characteristic left ventricular antero apical dyskinesia that recovers to normal in a few days4. Severe emotional stress is the most common trigger for this syndrome5. The aethiopatogenesis of this syndrome has yet to be defined1.
