          Abstract

          Fetal exposition to angiotensin-converting-enzyme- inhibitors (ACEI) is associated with increased neonatal morbidity and mortality. Long-term follow-up in 3 patients after fetal ACEI exposition revealed impaired renal function in two, severe hypertension and proteinuria in one and isolated polycythaemia in 3 patients. Careful long-term follow-up in children with ACEI-fetopathy is recommended.
