Magnetic resonance imaging and thermography were performed in a 67-year-old man with idiopathic facial angioedema. Thermography suggested decreased heat emission in the region of the angioedema. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed diffuse high intensity in the subcutaneous interstitial tissue and dilated veins on T2-weighted images. Marked contrast enhancement was noted in the subcutaneous tissue on postcontrast T1-weighted images.
