We received a 14-years old girl suffering from recurrent acute attacks of abdominal pain and nausea with facial swelling and labial angioedema, reoccurring irregularly since 3 years without a clear trigger.
A large panel of radiological and laboratory investigations could not unveil the cause of these episodes, until she was readmitted in the ward during a similar crisis with afebrile abdominal pain, face swelling and a transient crural macular rash.
