A recently reported cardiac syndrome of transient left ventricular dys- function, clinically resembles acute myocardial infarction and presents with chest pain, ECG changes and minimal elevation of cardiac enzymes in absence of myocardial ischemia or injury. The clinical presentation includes a wide range of symptoms and left ventricular function is normalized completely within days to weeks. This syndrome is likely a non -ischemic, metabolic-dependent syndrome caused by stress-induced activation of the cardiac adrenoreceptors. We report three cases of stress-induced transient LV dysfuction.
