Angioedema is defined as swelling without itchiness or significant redness.
Angioedema can be caused by medications. ACE Inhibitors are a group of medications commonly associated with angioedema. Aspirin and NSAIDs can also lead to swelling.
Angioedema can occur as part of an underlying diagnosis such as a Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) or Acquired Angioedema. These conditions occur secondary to a deficiency or defect in an enzyme called C1Esterase Inhibitor.
Treatment of angioedema depends on the underlying cause.
