Title: A case of brucellosis complicated with fatal capillary leak syndrome
Author: H. Karsen, S. T. Koruk, C. Calisur, L. Karagac, F. Duygu

Abstract:  Brucellosis may involve multiple organs and progresses with complications. Brucella endocarditis, disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC) and chronic renal insufficiency are rare complications of brucellosis. Capillary leak syndrome due to brucellosis is seen even more rarely and up to this date, only one case has been reported. Our case will probably be the second. In this article, a case of brucellosis associated with the development of DIC, infective endocarditis and capillary leak syndrome is presented. Although antimicrobial treatment with ceftriaxone, doxycycline and rifampicine in intensive care unit, the patient died. As the reporting of capillary leak syndrome due to brucellosis is very rare, this case is regarded as valuable to be presented and will serve to call attention to this issue (Ref. 15).  

Keywords: brucellosis, capillary leak syndrome, infective endocarditis, renal failure.
