Systemic capillary leak syndrome (SCLS) is a very rare and lethal disease characterized by hemoconcentration and hypoalbuminemia caused by reversible plasma extravasation. The underlying cause for SCLS remains largely unknown and acute treatment has remained mainly supportive. Prophylaxis with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) has been shown to successfully prevent further episodes in affected patients. We reported a case of SCLS in a patient who presented to our hospital with COVID-19 and developed profound shock.

Abstract

Systemic capillary leak syndrome (SCLS) is a very rare and lethal disease characterized by hemoconcentration and hypoalbuminemia caused by reversible plasma extravasation. The underlying cause for SCLS remains largely unknown and acute treatment has remained mainly supportive. Prophylaxis with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) has been shown to successfully prevent further episodes in affected patients. We reported a case of SCLS in a patient who presented to our hospital with COVID-19 and developed profound shock.
