Abstract

The antiphospholipid syndrome is a rarely recognized cause of thrombotic incidents, the stroke among others. One of the reasons for this is little awareness among physicians of this syndrome, which given an early enough diagnosis and anticoagulant therapy decreases substantially the risk of thrombosis occurrence. It is especially important with secondary derivative antiphospholipid syndrome which treatment essentially depends on the treatment of the primary base illness.The most frequent features are arterial and venous thrombosis in different vessels of different location and spontaneous abortions. Miscellaneous symptomatology of the antiphospholipid syndrome makes it a unit of importance for every physician. The publication presents the pathogenesis, diagnostics and treatment of the antiphospholipid syndrome.
