Abstract
Takotsubo syndrome is a good prognosis acute cardiac syndrome more frequently occurring in postmenopausal women, usually preceded by psychological or physical stress. The authors collected demographic and clinical data and evaluated psychiatric and psychological aspects of a seven-patient- sample diagnosed with this syndrome. Patient Health Questionnaire and Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) were applied. Four of the participants were medicated with psychotropic medication and a depressive disorder was diagnosed in two of them. MMPI results revealed psychopathic deviate and paranoia characteristics in the evalu- ated patients.
