Abstract

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is an increasingly recognized clinical syndrome of transient left ventricular dysfunction, commonly with apical ballooning, in the context of physical or emotional stress. Recently, an inverted-Takotsubo contractile pattern has been described with hypokinesis of the basal and mid-ventricular segments and sparing of the apex. We report a case of a 30-year-old man presenting with transient left ventricular dysfunction in an inverted-Takotsubo contractile pattern, associated with a newly discovered pheochromocytoma, and present a literature review of the inverted-Takotsubo contractile pattern cardiomyopathy.
