Takotsubo syndrome (TS) is an acute cardiac condition with presentation indistinguishable from acute coronary syndrome (ACS), and mechanism independent of epicardial coronary obstruction. Acute coronary artery plaque rupture/occlusion is not expected in TS. Nonetheless, the physiologic stress of ACS might itself trigger TS, leading to coexistence of both conditions, and diagnostic uncertainty.

A disorder of cardiac function secondary to hypersensitivity reactions. It is characterized by coexistence of acute coronary syndromes and cardiac MAST CELL and PLATELET ACTIVATION. It may be induced by exposure to drugs (e.g., antibiotics, anesthetics, contrast media), food, and environmental triggers (e.g., insect bites and stings, poison ivy).
