Stress-induced cardiomyopathy (SICM) is characterized by transient systolic dysfunction of the apical and mid segments of the left ventricle without obstructive coronary artery disease. The precipitate causes are reported either an emotional or physically stressful event, which induces hyper-catecholamine secretion. It is extremely rare that SICM was induced by internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysmal dilation. In this case report, we present an 86-year-old female patient with SICM induced by ICA aneurysm with panhypopituitarism, who on hormone replacement therapy had normalized asynergy.
