HAE expert centers
Angioedema syndromes comprise predominantly rare hereditary diseases, manifested by recurrent swelling and pain. Attacks are recurrent and severe and disturb patients’ daily routine and may become life-threatening. HAE is considered an “orphan disease” and should attract special attention from care-takers. Angioedema centers have been established by professional clinics specializing in Dermatology, Allergy and Immunology. They provide medical and nursing services, as well as support and educational programs to help patients cope with this chronic condition, thereby helping patients “to live with the illness”.
