Abstract
Idiopathic Systemic Capillary Leak Syndrome (SCLS) is a rare entity characterised by idiopathic increasing of capillary permeability associated with recurrent attacks of hypovolaemic shock. We report the case of a 39-year-old man with a SCLS fourteen years after a cadaveric renal transplantation. The clinical evolution was rapidly fatal despite treatment with corticoids, aminophylline and terbutaline which are the most efficient drugs known to prevent attacks.
