Abstract

Although urticaria and facial and peripheral edema are well recognized idiosyncratic reactions to ionic contrast medium, to our knowledge, isolated angioedema of the small bowel has not been reported previously. We present a case of acute onset of small bowel edema and ascites during the infusion of iodiated contrast medium.
