In this issue of the journal, Teh and co-authors present a case series and review of Tako-tsubo syndrome in the Australian setting [
]. With a relatively large series, the authors confirm that the clinical characteristics of the syndrome are similar to those originally described in the Japanese population. There is also the same relationship with stress, both physical and emotional, and the same apparent prognosis.
