The Phantom in our opera - or the hidden ways of the autonomic nervous system in cardiac patients

By C. van Tellingen

Abstract

The role of the autonomic nervous system in the understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms in a variety of cardiovascular clinico-pathological conditions is highlighted from a clinician's point of view with the focus on coronary mimicry, enhanced sympathetic tone and syndrome X. A unique case is presented where sinus node dysfunction in pandysautonomia seemed to be an early sign of hypothalamic glioblastoma. In addition, relevant literature on this topic is addressed to put distinct clinical patterns into a broader perspective
