Abstract

This article presents a case report of a 13-year-old boy who presented to the Emergency Department with abdominal pain and vomiting. He had a known history of recurrent swelling but no previous abdominal episodes. A computed tomography scan revealed small bowel intussusception and he was scheduled for surgery. The patient had a history of multiple episodes of swelling of extremities, face, and genitalia. The Allergy Consult Service was consulted for perioperative management of his angioedema.
