|Title:||Hereditary angioedema: Report of a case|
|Citation:||Ear, Nose & Throat Journal, 2001; 80(5):321-324|
|Publisher:||Medquest Communications, LLC|
|Abstract:||Hereditary angioedema is caused by an absolute deficiency or the functional inactivity of C1 esterase inhibitor in plasma. A precise diagnosis is important because, unlike allergic forms of mucocutaneous edema, this condition does not respond to epinephrine, antihistamines, or corticosteroids. We report the case of a 24-year-old man who experienced an acute attack after he had stopped taking his prophylactic medication.|
