Abstract

To evaluate the pathogenetic role of antiphospholipid antibodies in Kienböck's disease, we performed a clinical and laboratory study in a series of 16 patients. Antiphospholipid antibodies detected by means of the lupus anticoagulant and anticardiolipin antibody test were found in three of them. No other risk factors were present in these patients. We discuss the possible significance of these findings.
