Takotsubo syndrome(TTS) is often preceded by emotional or physical stress. Epileptic seizures are described in >100 cases. It is unknown whether patients with immediate and delayed detection of seizure-induced TTS differ.We screened the literature and compared clinical and electrocardiographic (ECG) findings. In 48 cases with seizure-associated TTS, the time between seizure and TTS-detection was reported. Troponin levels were elevated in 37/40. ECG abnormalities were negative T-waves(40%), ST-elevations(33%) and ventricular fibrillation/flutter(10%).
