You are correct.
"Anaphylactoid reaction" is a different entity than "Angioedema."
Therefore, to classify "ACE inhibitor induced (acquired) Angioedema" as any
type of an allergic reaction ("Anaphylactiod") is an error.
How would such an error be captured and classified?

(Sideline: this disease is special to me as I had an extended family in my
cachement area who would lose members to this. we worked out a strange
cooperative arrangement and didn't lose another.)
