Oedema

I have a death certificate for a 14 month old that states the following: Cause of Death - 1) Oedema of Glottis which he had suffered from for two days 2) cardiac valvular disease and numerous local oedemas which he had suffered from since birth.

Would someone please be able to explain this is modern terms and provide a reason why this child might have had this condition from birth? Is it considered a birth defect or was it associated with some sort of illness, perhaps of the mother? I understand that Oedema is swelling associated with fluid.

I have tried googling but haven't found a satisfactory explanation.

Thanks, Jenny
