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 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.
