Syndrome de takotsubo: à propos d’un cas

Cas Clinique / Case Report

Résumé

Le syndrome de takotsubo est une entité clinique de découverte récente mimant un syndrome coronarien aigu (SCA) en l’absence de lésions coronaires significatives associées. Il concerne surtout les femmes âgées exposées à un stress intense, le plus souvent de nature psychique. Sa physiopathologie reste incertaine et son traitement reste empirique. Le pronostic est souvent favorable en dehors de complications aiguës imprévisibles.

Takotsubo syndrome: a case report

Abstract

Takotsubo syndrome is a recent heart syndrome that may mimic acute coronary syndrome without significant coronary artery disease. It is usually observed in elderly women and often triggered by an episode of acute stress, especially emotional stress. The pathophysiology of this syndrome remains unclear and its treatment is empiric. Prognosis seems to be favorable, excluding acute and unpredictable complications.
