We report two cases of cutaneous adverse reactions during treatment with diltiazem. Both patients developed widespread, pruriginous, erythematous, maculopapular eruptions with fever and facial angioedema, 48 to 72 hours after starting diltiazem. Delayed hypersensitivity to diltiazem was suspected and the diagnosis was confirmed by skin patch tests followed by cutaneous biopsy.
