A 50-year-old female with a final diagnosis of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) was reported. Episodes of seizures, which were companied with a transient tombstoning ST elevation, were recorded during treatment. This report on TCM with tombstoning ST elevation implies to clinicians that the ECG changes of TCM are of great variability.
