Hereditary Angioedema (HAE)
A Potentially Life-Threatening ConditionStreaming Video - 2012
Not everyone has heard of hereditary angioedema, even though it's been the subject of a popular television medical series. However, this condition is very familiar to people who treat disorders of the immune system. It's an out-of-control inflammatory response that can cause a person's face, arms, and legs to swell for no apparent reason. It may also cause the airway to swell and can be fatal. Fortunately, HAE is rare, and there are treatments for this condition. This program introduces people who have lived successfully with HAE and tells about treatments that are working to help them manage the disease and live normal, and even healthy, lives.
