Abstract
Two cases are reported of diffuse abnormality of capillary permeability, leading to a loss of plasma into the tissues (capillary leak syndrome), with subsequent shock and pulmonary edema. It is suggested that a number of pulmonary diseases, collectively called adult respiratory distress syndrome, may be the result of increase pulmonary capillary permeability, increased alveolar epithelial permeability, or abnormalities of pulmonary interstitial solute removal.
