Angioedema is characterized by a rapid onset of subcutaneous edema in various parts of the body, frequently involving the upper respiratory and gastrointestinal tract. Angioedema is a relatively common problem in differential diagnosis. Since the appropriate treatment will vary depending on the pathogenic mechanism, it is important to investigate the immunochemical basis of the angioedema symptoms. The hereditary form of angioedema should be differentiated from the acquired forms and from other related conditions such as allergic angioedema and idiopathic angioedema.
