Abstract: Hereditary angioedema is a rare and commonly misdiagnosed disease characterized by recurrent, painful, nonurticarial, and nonpruritic deep tissue swelling attacks, including potentially life-threatening asphyxiation. Nurses can assist in identifying disease hallmarks and provide emergency care, patient support, and education about injectable or infused medications.
