INTRODUCTION: Systemic capillary leak syndrome (SCLS), or Clarkson’s disease, is a rare disorder characterized by hemoconcentration, hypoalbuminemia, reversible plasma extravasation and vascular collapse. Less than 250 cases have been reported since its first description in 1960. The diagnosis may be missed as symptoms are nonspecific and mimic other disease states.
