Abstract

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is considered a neurogenic heart disease resulting from impaired autonomic function and is known to be associated with various neurological and medical conditions. To our knowledge, although tetanus is frequently accompanied by autonomic instability, there has been no report of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy in patients with tetanus. Here we describe a patient with Takotsubo cardiomyopathy as a manifestation of autonomic instability in severe tetanus.
