ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Bayesian approach to interpreting the pathogenesis of Takotsubo syndrome, developed by Thomas Bayes. The article explains the Bayesian theory on common diseases. The risks include in the diagnosis of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy include the procedural of diagnostic tests. The article describes the Takotsubo syndrome or transient left ventricular apical ballooning or broken heart syndrome as a rare condition characterized by chest pain and electrocardiographic abnormalities.

    Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery is a well-known cause of sudden death. Noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium is a cardiomyopathy characterized by prominent trabeculae and deep intertrabecular recesses. Both anomalies are rare. We report the case of a child with both anomalous...
