INTRODUCTION: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) is a rare cause of acute onset, transient cardiac dysfunction mimicking acute coronary syndromes (ACS). It usually presents itself in postmenopausal women undergoing acute emotional or physical stress, and manifests itself as ST elevation on ECG, and elevated troponin levels. We present a case of complete heart block as presentation of TCM in an elderly male.
