Cilnidipine is a 4(th) generation dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker approved recently for the treatment of essential hypertension. It is not known to present with ankle edema like amlodipine. Moreover, it has been proposed as an alternative anti-hypertensive for patients with amlodipine-induced edema. We report a case of cilnidipine induced ankle edema.
