Angioedema can be classified into three forms: a) an idiopathic form with unknown pathogenetic mechanisms, b) an extrinsic factor-induced form (due to histamine [IgE- and non IgE- triggered] or kinin-mediated pathophysiology), and c) a hereditary/acquired form associated with C1 esterase inhibitor
deficiency or dysfunction (5).
