Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an immune system disorder that leads to increased blood clotting. Patients with this syndrome develop clots in arteries and veins, as well as recurrent miscarriages in pregnant women.

Symptoms of antiphospholipid syndrome may include skin rashes, blood clots, migraines, and pregnancy complications.


The causes of antiphospholipid syndrome may be related to immune system dysfunction, as well as genetic factors.


Diagnosis of antiphospholipid syndrome includes blood tests for antibodies to phospholipids, as well as ultrasound examination of the blood vessels.


Treatment involves taking medications to prevent blood clotting, as well as monitoring blood clotting activity.


Prevention of antiphospholipid syndrome may include moderate physical exercise, healthy eating, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.


For the diagnosis and treatment of antiphospholipid syndrome, it is necessary to consult a rheumatologist or hematologist.
