angioedema affects the face of the patient, usually the eyes, lips,
and in some cases, the throat and tongue also. To learn about ICD
angioedema, read the following.
ICD is an acronym for International Statistical Classification of
Diseases. ICD is a coding of different diseases, their symptoms,
abnormal social conditions, complaints, and certain external causes of
injury or diseases, as classified by the World Health Organization
The code set or ICD gives permission of more than 14,400 different
codes of disease and also the finding of many new diagnoses. If the
sub-classifications are used, these codes can be further expanded up to
16,000 codes and more.
Now, let us understand what facial angioedema is
and what it can do to you. Facial angioedema, in some cases, is
recurring. In children, it can be caused by insect bites. The
most common and obvious symptoms are swollen throat, lips, and tongue;
however, in some cases, hives may also appear.
The most serious situation can be blockage in the upper airway due to
immense swelling and it may threaten the life of the patient. Factors
that trigger angioedema episodes vary and symptoms characteristically
last from 48 to 72 hours; however, they can also last from 4 hours to 7
can cause angioedema, which is sometimes referred to as angioedema
allergy. These factors that can trigger such allergy include nuts,
eggs, certain fruits, shellfish, etc. In some cases, insect stings or
bites can also cause these reactions. This allergy may cause hives to
develop, and, in some cases, the condition is pretty severe.
Angioedema is characterized by swelling that occurs just below the
surface of the skin, usually around the lips and eyes. In people prone
to allergy, an allergic reaction can cause the body to produce
histamine, which results in the swelling of blood vessels.
