Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is characterized by transient systolic ballooning of apical or mid segments of the left ventricle (LV) mimicking acute myocardial infarction in the absence of obstructive epicardial coronary artery disease. Recurrences remain rare and most recurrence case reports are about apical ballooning or typical Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. We present a rare case of recurrence in mid ventricular ballooning or atypical variant of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. This case highlights the importance of future follow-up and potential of recurrence even in atypical variants.
