Abstract

The antiphospholipid syndrome is an autoimmune condition in which venous or arterial thrombosis is a primary clinical feature. The other primary clinical feature is adverse pregnancy outcome, specifically recurrent miscarriage, fetal death, or preterm delivery due to severe preeclampsia or placental insufficiency. The diagnostic autoantibodies for antiphospholipid syndrome are lupus anticoagulant, anticardiolipin, or anti-beta2-glycoprotein I.
