BACKGROUND: Idiopathic angioedema is defined as localized swelling of the cutaneous and mucosal tissue that occurs in episodes without a clear etiology. It can be problematic to treat when the underlying pathophysiology is not well understood. OBJECTIVE: To identify successful treatments of idiopathic angioedema reported in the literature. METHODS: A literature search was performed using PubMed. Published case reports and articles discussing treatment of idiopathic angioedema were used in the formulation of this review...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid hormones control and up-regulate the synthesis of many plasma proteins. OBJECTIVE: To explore possible associations between thyroid hormone and complement levels in patients with hereditary angioedema resulting from the deficiency of the C1-inhibitor (C1-INH-HAE). METHODS: In this case-control study, serum thyrotropin, free triiodothyronine (FT3), and free thyroxine (FT4) levels, anti-thyroid peroxidase and antithyroglobulin antibody titers, and C1-INH concentrations were measured in 117 euthyroid patients with C1-INH-HAE and compared with their clinical properties...

INTRODUCTION: Upper airway angioedema is a life-threatening emergency department (ED) presentation with increasing incidence. Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor induced angioedema (AAE) is a non-mast cell mediated etiology of angioedema. Accurate diagnosis by clinical examination can optimize patient management and reduce morbidity from inappropriate treatment with epinephrine. The aim of this study is to describe the incidence of angioedema subtypes and the management of AAE. We evaluate the appropriateness of treatments and highlight preventable iatrogenic morbidity...

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare disease associated with either a quantitative or qualitative deficiency in C1-inhibitor (C1-INH) or normal C1-INH. HAE with normal C1-INH is associated in 20% of cases with mutations in the gene for factor XII (FXII) or FXII-HAE. A recent review described 41 families, including 14 German and 15 Spanish families. We have constructed a register of French patients and their characteristics. A national survey was launched through the French National Center of Reference for Angioedema (CREAK) to study the clinical, biological and therapeutic characteristics of patients with HAE linked to a mutation of FXII gene...

PURPOSE: The published evidence on pharmacologic approaches to the management of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI)-induced angioedema is reviewed. SUMMARY: Angioedema is a serious, potentially life-threatening adverse effect of ACEI use. Although the underlying mechanism is not fully understood, excess bradykinin produced through a complex interplay between the kallikrein-kinin and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone systems is thought to play a major role...

Angioedema (AE) is a unique clinical presentation of an unchecked release of bradykinin. The origin of this clinical presentation can be either genetic or acquired. The outcome within the patient is subcutaneous swelling of the lower layers of the epidermis. Symptoms are most often localized to the upper airway or the gastrointestinal tract. A typical course resolves in 5 to 7 days, but in some patients, the clinical manifestations exist up to 6 weeks. Hereditary AE is rare and genetically linked, and typically, the patient has episodes for many years before diagnosis...

Hereditary and acquired angioedema are potentially life-threatening diseases characterized by spontaneous episodes of subcutaneous and submucosal swelling of face, lips, oral cavity, larynx, and GI tract. Hereditary angioedema (HAE) usually presents within the first and second decades of life, whereas acquired angioedema presents in adults after 40 years of age. These clinical symptoms together with reduced C1 inhibitor levels and/or activity can usually confirm the diagnosis. In recent years, multiple novel therapies for treating hereditary angioedema have emerged including C1 inhibitor concentrates, ecallantide/kallikrein inhibitor, and icatibant/bradykinin receptor antagonist...

Due to marked heterogeneity of clinical presentations, comprehensive knowledge of angioedema phenotypes is crucial for correct diagnosis and choosing the appropriate therapeutic approach. One of the ways to a meaningful clinical distinction can be made between forms of angioedema occurring "with or without wheals." Angioedema with wheals (rash) is a hallmark of urticaria, either acute or chronic, spontaneous or inducible. Angioedema without wheals may still be manifested in about 10 % of patients with urticaria, but it may also occur as a separate entity...

Uncontrolled generation of bradykinin (BK) due to insufficient levels of protease inhibitors controlling contact phase (CP) activation, increased activity of CP proteins, and/or inadequate degradation of BK into inactive peptides increases vascular permeability via BK-receptor 2 (BKR2) and results in subcutaneous and submucosal edema formation. Hereditary and acquired angioedema due to C1-inhibitor deficiency (C1-INH-HAE and -AAE) are diseases characterized by serious and potentially fatal attacks of subcutaneous and submucosal edemas of upper airways, facial structures, abdomen, and extremities, due to inadequate control of BK generation...

Idiopathic histaminergic acquired angioedema (IH-AAE) is a common cause of recurrent angioedema without wheals. It is a mast cell-mediated disease thought to belong to the same clinical entity as chronic urticaria (CU). The objective of this study was to describe the clinical and epidemiological characteristics of IH-AAE patients. From 2014 to 2015, 534 patients were seen at our national reference centre for angioedema and/or urticaria. Among them, we identified 31 patients with idiopathic histaminergic acquired angioedema without wheals (IH-AAE)...

BACKGROUND: Patients suffering from bradykinin-induced angioedema show recurrent swelling of subcutaneous and submucosal structures. Increased bradykinin levels lead to an increase in vascular permeability and edema formation. Current therapy consists of B2 bradykinin receptor antagonists, C1-esterase-inhibitor (C1-INH) concentrate, or the kallikrein inhibitor ecallantide. In most cases the treatment of acute attacks is sufficient. Prophylactic therapy is recommended only in severe cases...

The number of cases of acquired angioedema related to angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors induced (ACEI-AAE) is on the increase, with a potential concomitant increase in life-threatening attacks of laryngeal edema. Our objective was to determine the main characteristics of ACEI-AAE attacks and, in doing so, the factors associated with likelihood of hospital admission from the emergency department (ED) after a visit for an attack.A prospective, multicenter, observational study (April 2012-December 2014) was conducted in EDs of 4 French hospitals in collaboration with emergency services (SAMU 93) and a reference center for bradykinin-mediated angioedema...

BACKGROUND: The association between thyroid autoimmunity (TA) and idiopathic isolated angioedema (or angioedema without urticaria) has not been evaluated in either children or in adults up until now. We, therefore, aimed to investigate underlying or concomitant TA and/or autoimmune thyroid disease in children diagnosed with recurrent idiopathic angioedema. METHODS: Children who were consecutively diagnosed with recurrent idiopathic histaminergic acquired angioedema (IH-AAE) between January 2011 and January 2014 constituted the case group...

Several clinical and biological features of lymphoproliferative diseases have been associated with an increased risk of developing autoimmune manifestations. Acquired deficiency of C1-inhibitor (C1-INH) (AAE) is a rare syndrome clinically similar to hereditary angioedema (HAE) characterized by local increase in vascular permeability (angioedema) of the skin and the gastrointestinal and oro-pharyngo-laryngeal mucosa. Bradykinin, a potent vasoactive peptide, released from high molecular weight kininogen when it is cleaved by plasma kallikrein (a serine protease controlled by C1-INH), is the mediator of symptoms...

OBJECTIVE: Bradykinin-mediated angioedema is characterized by transient attacks of localized edema of subcutaneous or submucosal tissues and can be life-threatening when involving the upper airways. The aim of this study was to determine the features of acute attacks that might be associated with admission to an ICU. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We carried out a retrospective, multicenter, observational study in consecutive patients attending one of six reference centers in France for acute bradykinin-mediated angioedema attacks...

No specific drugs are licensed for the treatment of ACE inhibitor (ACEI)-acquired angioedema (ACEI-AAE). Icatibant, an antagonist of the B2 receptor of bradykinin, is a potential treatment for this condition; however, its use in this setting is poorly documented. We report here clinical outcomes of 13 patients with ACEI-AAE treated with icatibant, in a real-life setting. Thirteen patients on ACEI seen in an Emergency Department (ED) with angioedema involving face, lips or the upper airways were analyzed. Angioedema due to known causes other than ACEI treatment was excluded...

BACKGROUND: Angioedema induced by treatment with angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitors accounts for one third of angioedema cases in the emergency room; it is usually manifested in the upper airway and the head and neck region. There is no approved treatment for this potentially life-threatening condition. METHODS: In this multicenter, double-blind, double-dummy, randomized phase 2 study, we assigned patients who had ACE-inhibitor-induced angioedema of the upper aerodigestive tract to treatment with 30 mg of subcutaneous icatibant, a selective bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist, or to the current off-label standard therapy consisting of intravenous prednisolone (500 mg) plus clemastine (2 mg)...
