Abstract

Episodic angioedema with eosinophilia is characterized by recurrent angioedema, urticaria, fever, weight gain and hypereosinophilia. Although this syndrome shows similarities to idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome, it differs in that it has good prognosis and has no organ involvement. The pathogenesis is unclear, but IL-5 is thought to be major cytokine of pathogenesis. It has benign course with spontaneous remission or low-dose prednisolone treatment. Here, we describe a patient whose clinical and laboratory features are similar to those observed in episodic angioedema with eosinophilia.
