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.
