- •Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors can cause angioedema of the small bowel.
- •The diagnosis is often made by radiologists because clinical signs are non-specific.
- •T2-weighted MRI facilitates recognition of submucosal edema in affected bowel.
- •Findings of ascites and mucosal/serosal bowel enhancement are also evident on MRI.
- •The condition resolves upon discontinuation of the offending medication.
