Limitations and Contraindications
Serum ACE is significantly reduced in patients on ACE inhibitors such as Vasotec and captopril. The reference interval for children and adolescents may be as much as 50% higher than specimens from adults
An elevation in ACE, along with radiographic evidence of infiltrates and/or adenopathy and organ biopsies showing non-caseating epithelial granulomas, is suggestive of a diagnosis of sarcoidosis
