Abstract

A 40-year-old man with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis undergoing home non-invasive ventilation, with no risk factors for coronary artery disease, was admitted with bilateral lung infiltrates. Given the lack of a favorable clinical response, transfer to our department was scheduled. During ambulance transport the patient experienced chest discomfort. Upon arrival at our department, a diagnosis of tako-tsubo syndrome was made. In this report, the clinical aspects are taken as a basis to highlight differences with common available findings, and an international registry is proposed to help piece together fractional information present in the literature.
