Repeated subileus due to angioedema during renin-angiotensin system blockade.

Author information

  • 1Division of Nephrology and Endocrinology, University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.


A 77-year-old man with membranous nephropathy was treated with triple blockade of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and developed subileus six times in 5 months. The resection of his sigmoid colon uncovered angioedema. It should be noted that angiotensin-converting enzyme or angiotensin receptor blocker can cause angioedema of the intestine and induce subileus.
