A 70-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital due to difficulty in moving her limbs. She had trismus and a necrotic and contaminated wound in her left lower leg. A diagnosis of tetanus was confirmed and intensive care was started. On the second day, her blood pressure fell and a ST segment elevation on electrocardiography (ECG) was detected. She was diagnosed with takotsubo cardiomyopathy by echocardiogram and improved undergoing conservative therapy.
