Hereditary angioedema

Hereditary angioedema is a rare genetic disease that affects approximately one in 50,000 people. It is usually an inherited disorder and is characterised by the accumulation of fluids outside the blood vessels, causing swelling of the face, hands, feet, extremities, genitals, gastrointestinal tract or the upper respiratory tract. Because it is a low-prevalence disease with symptoms similar to those of other diseases and is therefore difficult to diagnose, it is important for there to be reference centres so that suspected and diagnosed cases can be centralised.
