Letter to the Editor
Sir: Ziprasidone is an antipsychotic agent that is generally well
tolerated. Allergic responses to ziprasidone have been reported,
including immunoglobulin E (IgE)–related pedal edema, lifethreatening
hypersensitivity syndrome, and angioedema. We
present a report of a patient who developed angioedema upon
starting ziprasidone treatment.
