Hereditary angioedema (HAE) due to C1 inhibitor deficiency (C1-INH-HAE) is a rare autosomal dominant disease with deficiency (type I C1-INH-HAE) or dysfunction (type II C1-INH-HAE) of C1 inhibitor (C1-INH) due to mutations in the SERPING1 gene (1-3).
Hereditary angioedema (HAE) was ruled out by a negative family history and normal C4 and C1 inhibitor levels.
Fifty-one patients with a confirmed HAE diagnosis and quantitative and functional C1 inhibitor deficiency (type I) (n=49; 96.1%) or only functional deficiency (type II) (n=2, 3.9%) were included.

Three types of hereditary angioedema (HAE) have been described: two of them are due to C1 inhibitor (C1-INH) deficiency (C1-INH-HAE types I and II) and one is characterized by normal C1-INH (nC1-INH-HAE).
