Resumen

FERNANDEZ-FERREIRA, Ricardo et al. Stress induced cardiomyopathy due to a Mexican earthquake. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.88, n.3, pp.219-224. ISSN 1665-1731.  https://doi.org/10.1016/j.acmx.2018.02.008.

Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy mainly occurs in postmenopausal women, with or with- out cardiovascular disease, and is commonly associated with emotional or physical stress. After nearly 27 years of extensive efforts towards a better understanding of this disorder, current knowledge remains limited. Many people suffer post-traumatic stress, and this situation can be associated to stress cardiomyopathy. The case is presented of a female who suffers stress asso- ciated with the earthquake of 19 September 2017 in Mexico City, and arrived in the Emergency Department in cardiogenic shock.
