Abstract

Background: Hereditary angio-edema (HAE), characterized by recurrent episodes of angioedema involving the skin and the mucosa of the upper respiratory or the gastrointestinal tracts, results from heterozygosity for deficiency of the serine proteinase inhibitor (serpin), C1 inhibitor (C1-INH).
