Angioedema, An Issue of Immunology and Allergy Clinics - E-Book
Marco Cicardi, MD
This issue of Immunology and Allergy Clinics provides the latest essential updates in angioedema. This potentially life-threatening condition, as is the case with laryngeal angioedema, is a rare but important disease. Leading physicians review the spectrum of angioedema to provide a framework for approaching the management of these patients. Differential diagnosis is discussed in depth, as a variety of other conditions can mimic some aspects of angioedema. Angioedema occurs both in conjunction with or separately from the more common swelling disorder, urticaria. Various types of angioedema that classically occur in the absence of urticaria are discussed. Multiple types of hereditary angioedema, idiopathic recurring angioedema, and Gleich's Syndrome are covered.
