Abstract

Hughes (antiphospholipid) syndrome is a noninflammatory autoimmune disease. The most critical pathologic process is thrombosis, which results in most of the clinical features suffered by these patients. Recurrent thrombosis together with an adverse pregnancy history and the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies defines the syndrome.
