Hereditary Angioedema (HAE)


Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare genetic disorder that causes recurrent episodes of severe swelling in various parts of the body. The swelling is caused by a deficiency or dysfunction of a protein called C1-inhibitor. There is no cure for HAE, but there are treatments that can help to prevent or control attacks. With proper treatment, people with HAE can live normal, active lives. HAE is classified in Type 1, Type 2 and HAE with Normal C1-Inhibitor.
