Angiotensin-converting Enzyme inhibitors-induced Angioedema

DOI: 10.2478/jce-2018-0004


Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) are widely used drugs nowadays in treating patients diagnosed with cardiovascular disorders. We present two consecutive cases of acquired angioedema caused by the administration of enalapril and lisinopril in patients with indication for ACE-inhibitors therapy. Rigorous follow-up of side effects of ACEI is required, due to these possible life-threatening adverse reactions.
