Nifedipine has been widely used in the treatment of angina and is gaining increasing acceptance in the therapy of systemic hypertension. Side effects of the drug include headaches, flushing, dizziness, palpitations and leg edema. We report on dose-dependent periorbital edema that developed as the sole side effect, previously not described, in 2 patients treated with nifedipine.
