Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) is an uncommon form of acute cardiomyopathy showing left ventricular apical ballooning. Its clinical characteristics resemble those of a myocardial infarct, while its imaging characteristics are critical on correctly characterizing and diagnosing the disease. It is a reversible cardiomyopathy, a rare variant that presents within a different patient profile and with its own hemodynamic considerations. Its recognition is important for prognostic, evaluation and treatment considerations.
