Although takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a rare entity, it is an important differential in patients presenting with symptoms, signs, and electrocardiographic changes suggestive of an acute myocardial infarction. Since it was first recognized in 1991, it has gained increasing attention worldwide; however, its etiology and consequently the optimal management still remains unclear. Here, the authors provide a review of the current literature accompanied with images of a typical case from our department.
