Multiple Sclerosis Exacerbation Presenting as Stress Cardiomyopathy (P6.162)

This case not only supports this theory, but also reports multiple sclerosis to be a potential cause of neurologic dysfunction leading to this cardiac phenomenon. In addition, it fortifies the theory that bilateral medullary lesions are required for many instances of autonomic dysfunction.Disclosure: Dr. Webb has nothing to disclose.
