Cough and converting enzyme inhibitors

Eur J Pediatr. 1992 Mar;151(3):225-6. doi: 10.1007/BF01954391.


Persisting cough developed in three children treated with converting enzyme inhibitors. The symptoms disappeared within 3-7 days after withdrawing medication. These observations in children complement previous reports in adults and indicate that cough may be induced by treatment with these agents.
