Hereditary angiooedema (HAE) is characterised by recurrence of cutaneous and mucous membrane swellings in any part of the body. Symptoms usually appear early in life and are normally accompanied by a family history because the disease is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. The spontaneous mutation rate is about 25% and more than 1001 inhibitor gene mutations have been described′different C1 inhibitor gene mutations have been described.
