Abstract

The antiphospholipid syndrome is an acquired autoimmune syndrome characterized by arterial and/or venous thrombosis and/or pregnancy morbidity in association with the prolonged presence of serum autoantibodies, including the so-called lupus anticoagulant and anticardiolipin antibodies, which are mainly directed against complexes of proteins and anionic phospholipids.
