Four patients suffered from chronic or recurrent angioedema, of sudden onset in adult life, associated with visceral pain and impossible to control by dietary means. In spite of normal complement function they respond very well to tranexamic acid therapy. Antiprotease drugs need not be restricted to cases of ClsINH deficiency.
