INTRODUCTION: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a non-ischemic cardiomyopathy characterized by transient apical ballooning of the left ventricle in the absence of coronary artery disease. Rarely, Takotsubo can present with isolated right ventricular or biventricular involvement. We describe a patient who developed biventricular Takotsubo cardiomyopathy after receiving neostigmine 14 years post heart-double lung transplant.
