Angioedema (AE) is characterized by painless, nonpruritic, nonpitting, and well-circumscribed areas of oedema due to increased vascular permeability. AE is most apparent in the head and neck, including the face, lips, palate, tongue, and larynx, but may involve any portion of the body. In advanced cases, AE progression leads to complete airway obstruction and death caused by laryngeal oedema. AE may involve the gastrointestinal tract, leading to intestinal wall oedema, which results in symptoms such as colicky abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. AE may occur as: 1/ urticarious angioedema (allergic or non-allergic); 2/ hereditary angioedema (HAE); and 3/ acquired angioedema (AAE).
