Idiopathic recurrent angioedema

Immunol Allergy Clin North Am. 2006 Nov;26(4):739-51. doi: 10.1016/j.iac.2006.09.004.


The treatment of idiopathic, chronic, recurrent angioedema with or without urticaria is difficult, both for patients and their physicians, because treatment often is only partially effective and is labor-intensive, expensive, and lengthy. New medications for urticaria and angioedema that currently are being tested clinically may prove effective.
