Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is an increasingly diagnosed entity, however the underlying pathophysiological

mechanisms and their clinical implications are incompletely understood. An 82-year-old female, diagnosed

with pituitary apoplexy, presented with ECG abnormalities and hsTnI levels consistent with an acute

coronary syndrome and therefore underwent urgent coronary angiography that showed no significant

stenosis and apical ballooning at left ventricle angiogram and therefore a TTS diagnosis was made.

Moreover, during catheterization a 20 s Torsade de Pointes was registered. TTS is an entity that can be

triggered by numerous conditions. This case of TTS was linked to many neuroendocrinological disorders.
