Abstract

Takotsubo syndrome (TS) is an acute and reversible form of myocardial stunning preceded by emotional or physical stress, not explained by an obstruction of an epicardial coronary artery as in acute coronary syndrome. Over the last decades, TS is receiving growing attention, leading to an increase in awareness and diagnostic rate. Chest pain and dyspnea are the most common presenting symptoms; however, nonspecific presentations make the diagnosis challenging for clinicians. Here, we present the case of a 76-year-old female who experienced two completely asymptomatic episodes of TS 20 years apart.
