But this mysterious condition is very well-known to people who treat disorders of the immune system.

Fortunately HAE is rare but there are treatments for this condition...in this program we meet people who have lived successfully with HAE. We will hear about treatments that are working to help them manage the disease and live successful, normal and even healthy lives.
