Abstract

Stress-induced cardiomyopathy, so-called Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, has recently been reported in Japan. Stress-induced cardiomyopathy is characterized by transient left ventricular apical dysfunction and ballooning, with normal coronary angiographic findings. We describe a rare case of stress-induced cardiomyopathy associated with lung adenocarcinoma presenting as hyponatremia.
