A case of menstruation-related angioedema is presented. The symptoms observed were cyclically appearing hoarseness due to laryngeal edema without any pain. Symptoms disappeared during intake of contraceptive pills and during pregnancy with recurrence at the onset of menstruation post partum. A therapeutic trial with tranexamic acid was successful. The use of tranexamic acid in secondary and idiopathic angioedema should be considered.
