C1-inhibitor (C1-INH) related hereditary angioedema (C1-INH-HAE) is a rare pathological condition caused by a deficiency or a functional alteration of serum protein C1-INH. Clinical manifestations are represented by recurrent, potentially life-threatening episodes of cutaneous or mucosal oedema. The present study analysed the effectiveness of a specific short-term prophylaxis protocol for the management of C1-INH-HAE patients requiring chronic periodontitis treatment.
