Capillary Leak Syndrome (Capillary Leak Syndrome) 4/5 (1)

Share Button

Definition

Primary capillary leak syndrome is rare, but causes episodes of severe swelling with fluid retention, especially around the muscles of the arms and legs. Also, symptoms from the lungs, heart bag (pericardial fluid), kidneys and nervous system may occur. Symptoms often develop over 1-3 days.

Disease Causes

The disease mechanism is that fluid from the blood (plasma) penetrates through the vein walls and into the connective tissue. Thus swelling with fluid accumulation occurs.
