Caption: Swollen tongue. Close-up of the face of a 57-year-old female patient with tongue swelling due to angioedema caused by a reaction to an angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor (ACE inhibitor). Angioedema is an allergic reaction characterised by the swelling of soft tissue in the lips, mouth, larynx and other areas. It can cause difficulty with breathing and potentially block the wind pipe. Treatment is with anti-inflammatory drugs and antihistamines.
