HEREDITARY ANGIOEDEMA (HAE)

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a very rare and potentially life threatening genetic condition that causes severe swelling (angioedema).  Swelling often occurs without a known trigger. The most common areas of the body to develop swelling are the limbs, face, intestinal tract, and airway.    The frequency and duration of swelling vary greatly and episodes often cause excruciating pain.  Up to 25% of HAE cases result from a spontaneous mutation of a blood factor gene called the C1-inhibitor.
