[Case Report] Recurrent ascites: a need to evaluate for hereditary angio-oedema

A 34-year-old housewife, in the 15th week of her first pregnancy, was referred to the Romanian Hereditary Angioedema Centre in January, 2015, because she was worried about potential risks to her pregnancy from symptoms she had had for the past 20 years. At age 14 years she began experiencing recurrent swelling of her limbs that would resolve spontaneously after 2–3 days. Over the next few years she started to develop genital and then recurrent facial swelling, each episode lasting 3–4 days. One episode of facial oedema was accompanied by swallowing and breathing difficulties.
