A place for everyone in the hereditary angioedema community, including patients, family members, caregivers and healthcare professionals

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare genetic disorder that causes recurrent episodes of swelling and pain in different parts of the body. It is thought that only 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 50,000 people in the entire world have HAE.

HAE is misdiagnosed in approximately 50% of patients.
