Abstract

Tako-tsubo’s syndrome is usually induced by sudden stress reaction, however symptoms may also occur without any cause. Most reported cases of this syndrome, more than 95%, affect women older than 60 years. We present a case of a 45 year-old man in good health with severe cardiovascular complication due to "simple" laryngological surgery using systemic anaesthesia. On the basis of clinical features and results of additional tests we recognize tako-tsubo syndrome.
