Angioedema and type I allergic reactions are rare but recognized side effects of thrombolytic drugs. They are more commonly reported during or after the treatment of acute ischemic stroke with alteplase compared to myocardial infarction (MI). Herein, we present a 68-year-old male patient who developed oropharyngeal and facial angioedema and urticarial skin rash on the upper limbs after treatment of acute MI with tenecteplase.
