PurposeHereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare disease caused by a C1 inhibitor (C1-INH) deficit. Clinically, HAE is manifested by repeated episodes of localized subcutaneous or submucosal oedema attacks. Managing HAE patients in pregnancy is challenging, since there are only limited data on the safety and efficacy of various therapeutic approaches.MethodsWe present our clinical experience treating acute HAE attacks during pregnancy in six consecutive patients.ResultsDuring the pregnancies, 79 HAE attacks occurred. The most frequent were abdominal 53 (67.1%) followed by peripheral 21 (26.6%), facial 10 (12.7%), and laryngeal 10 (12.7%) oedemas; 13 (16.5%) attacks were combined. Fifty (63.3%) attacks were treated with recombinant human C1-INH (rhC1-INH); 17 (21.5%) with plasma-derived, pasteurized, nanofiltered C1-INH (pnfC1-INH); 13 (16.5%) with icatibant; and 1 (1.3%) with plasma-derived, nanofiltered C1-INH (nfC1-INH). Treatment had to be repeated in 5 attacks (6.3%). All six deliveries (one caesarean section and five spontaneous vaginal deliveries) were complication free. All pregnancies went to the full term and the patients delivered healthy babies with a birth weight ranging from 2850 to 3690g. No congenital abnormalities were detected in the neonates. No abortions occurred.ConclusionsOur results show good C1-INH or icatibant treatment efficacy for HAE attacks in pregnancy. The treatment by the first drug used was effective in 93.7% of all attacks. In 6.3% of attacks, a second treatment had to be used. No adverse effects were observed.
