This study is about an elderly female patient who presented with rapid atrial fibrillation. Pharmacologic stress myocardial perfusion imaging with dipyridamole for the assessment of myocardial ischemia resulted in transient abnormalities on electrocardiogram, wall motion and perfusion defects with complete resolution 1 month later, suggestive of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. We believe that our case report is the first to describe this finding after dipyridamole stress.
