Abstract

Hereditary angioedema with C1-inhibitor deficiency (C1-INH-HAE) is characterized by recurrent attacks of swelling that affect various body sites. Such attacks are a frequent cause of visits to the emergency department and are often treated in the hospital. In recent years, self-administration of C1-inhibitor (C1-INH) concentrates at home has become an increasingly used option, with a positive impact on patient outcomes and quality of life.
