Abstract

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) is a medical condition characterized by a transient left ventricular apical dysfunction with unknown etiology. The clinical presentation mimics acute myocardial syndrome in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease. The association between acute pancreatitis and TCM, however, is rarely reported in the literature. To date, no cases of TCM resulting from the exacerbation of chronic pancreatitis have been described.
