Very good lecture
By Jalil Z. on 10. July 2020 for Urticaria (Hives) and Angioedema in Children

Very good lecture. As usual: clear, concise and comprehensive. I put 4 stars, because contrary to lectures about Asthma or Bronchiolitis, I felt that the experience of the teacher did not enrich this lecture as much as it did in the previous above. Otherwise, it is still top-notch learning material.
