A 76-year-old female with atrial fibrillation and prior cerebral infarction had chest discomfort during rehabilitation for left hemiparesis, and visited the nearby hospital. Her ECG, which was obtained 10 min after the onset, showed marked ST-segment elevation in leads I, II, III, aV(F) and V(2-6), and she was referred to our hospital for cardiac examination. On admission, her ECG, which was obtained 50 min after the onset, showed poor R wave progression and mild ST-segment elevation in leads V(5-6). During only 10 min after the admission, the ST-segment level increased dynamically, and it decreased spontaneously again. Left ventriculography showed akinesia of the mid-to-distal portion and hyperkinesia of the basal portion of the left ventricular chamber, and coronary angiography showed no significant coronary artery disease despite of significant ST-segment elevation. We diagnosed her as having tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy. She was discharged well 10 days later.
