Emedinews:Makesure:A patient on ACE inhibitor developed angioneurotic edema.


Situation: A patient on ACE inhibitor developed angioneurotic edema.
Reaction: Oh my God! Why was ACE inhibitor continued?
Lesson: Make sure that patients on ACE inhibitors are advised to watch for symptoms of urticaria and stop the drug immediately in case swelling of lip, face or tongue develops (Br J Clin Pharmacol 1999;48(6):861–5).
