Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Transient left ventricular apical ballooning also called Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a recently described cardiac syndrome. It often affects postmenopausal women having an acute physical or emotional stress, but it have also been described after convulsive status epilepticus. Although this association is rare and left ventricular function often recovers, it would be useful to the neurologist to be aware of the signs leading to this diagnosis, to improve the cardiac later care. Here we report a patient with partial status epilepticus in whom the diagnosis of transient left ventricular apical ballooning was made. We describe the diagnostic criteria and the potential complications that should be monitored.
