Abstract

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a group of three uncommon and potentially fatal conditions, each of which is transmitted as a somatic dominant trait. A recognized trigger to attacks is dental treatment, with tooth extraction frequently reported in the published work. The clinical symptoms may not manifest for many hours or even days after the procedure. We describe a recent case in Australia in which death resulted from HAE following dental extraction, and we discuss its post-mortem presentation and diagnosis, highlighting the need for dental practitioners to be aware of this condition.
