A 41-year-old lady who presented with sudden-onset severe headache diagnosed to have ruptured supraclinoid internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysm. Her cardiac echocardiography showed features of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. After stabilizing her cardiac condition, she underwent craniotomy and clipping of aneurysm. Both cardiac and neurological catastrophes were managed by the joint team with excellent outcome. This paper emphasizes the need for high-quality combined care.
