Abstract

Stress cardiomyopathy is typically a diagnosis of exclusion after appropriate rule out of other etiologies of ventricular dysfunction. It most commonly affects the left ventricle (LV). It rarely affects the right ventricle (RV) alone. Here we present a rare clinical dilemma in the setting of cardiac arrest, which occurred in the setting of a stressful event where the final diagnosis ended up being right ventricular takotsubu cardiomyopathy.
