Hereditary angioedema due to C1 Inhibitor (C1Inh) deficiency (HAE types I and II) is a rare, life-threatening disease causing spontaneous edema of the submucosal layers. A cohort of 127 individuals with symptoms of recurrent familial angioedema from 59 non-related families was studied. All the patients included fulfilled the diagnostic and biochemical criteria of HAE, including low C1Inh function and/or concentration. Genetic studies were carried out by PCR and sequencing of the C1NH locus… CONTINUE READING
