Abstract

We present a case a of 74-year-old man who was hospitalized due to angioneurotic Quincke oedema, manifested by a sudden swelling of the subcutaneous and submucosal tissues, including the larynx and throat. Among the many reasons that may cause the occurrence of this condition which is life-threatening disease, are also antagonists of the AT1 receptor for angiotensin II. We present a case of a patient with hypoparathyroidism and hypocalcemia in whom angioedema occurred during candesartan therapy.
