Abstract

We report case of an 83 year old female presented with multiple episodes of syncope. Electrocardiogram showed complete heart block and echocardiogram was consistent with tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy. Coronary angiogram did not reveal any significant coronary stenosis. She underwent permanent pacemaker implantation and subsequently left ventricular systolic function returned to normal.
