Hereditary angioedema is a rare genetic condition that can cause considerable swelling in various body tissues.

Hereditary angioedema can cause swelling in the hands, feet, arms, legs, face, throat and genitals. Patients can also experience unexplained abdominal pain.

Hereditary Angioedema Treatment

The treatment of hereditary angioedema aims to halt the progression of any swelling as quickly as possible and is particularly important with swelling of the throat which can obstruct the airway and be life-threatening.
