Apical ballooning is characterized by severe but reversible contractile dysfunction. The causative factor and the pathomechanism remain unknown. Several arrhythmias are reported to occur in apical-ballooning. We present a unique case of a 58-year-old man presenting with apical ballooning complicated by a prolonged third-degree atrioventricular block requiring the implantation of a pacemaker.
