As anti-Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) including Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors (TKI) become more widely used for the treatment of a variety of malignancies including Thyroid Cancer (TC), it is important for oncologists and patients to understand the potential adverse effects associated with these drugs. This review presents a case of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, associated with use of Lenvatinib therapy for thyroid cancer. It discusses the necessary interventions and treatment are needed to successfully resolve the complications that occur. This case illustrates the importance of close monitoring of patients under TKI therapy in order to identify early signs of congestive heart failure or myocardium damage.
