Takotsubo syndrome is a rare disease and remained ambiguous with its etiology. The disease manifests in various clinical characteristics and even mimicking acute coronary syndrome. We are reporting a case of an elderly lady who manifested by unsteady gaits and recurrent falls. Subacute infarct of the right corona radiata was observed on the brain CT. In addition, coronary angiography and ventriculogram were performed because of dynamic ECG changes and elevated troponin I levels. The angiogram was normal while ventriculogram showed apical ballooning. She was diagnosed and treated as Takotsubo syndrome.
