We present a case of a 59-year old male with a medical history of cardiovascular disease, history of untreated esophageal adenocarcinoma, depression, anxiety, and alcohol abuse who presented to our clinic with a new-onset photodistributed eruption and progressive periorbital edema. He was previously seen by his primary care physician for periorbital edema that was associated with ocular pain and was treated for presumed diagnosis of preseptal cellulitis. His symptoms continued to progress at which point he was thought to have angioedema secondary to lisinopril prompting discontinuation of this medication.
