This book discusses the major clinical features of the antiphospholipid syndrome.
With each chapter focusing on the different organs, the book provides a quick practical and reader-friendly reference for the different problems that might be encountered in clinical practice.
Treatment is a major concern in an area where evidence-based medicine is sparse and there are chapters dedicated to diagnosis from a laboratory point of view.
Further chapters focus on pregnancy management, arterial thrombosis and venous thrombosis as well as chapters on pediatric antiphospholipid syndrome and prognosis and long-term outcome.
Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of this disease, the primary readership groups are general and internal medicine physicians, but specialists in a wide range of differing fields will find this text an important addition to their libraries.
