Abstract

The antiphospholipid antibody syndrome is characterized by the presence of maternal anticardiolipin antibodies and/or the lupus anticoagulant in association with recurrent pregnancy loss, thrombotic events, and/or thrombocytopenia. This disorder occurs rarely, but pregnant patients with antiphospholipid antibodies are at risk for adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes. This article reviews the antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, including its pathophysiology, clinical sequelae, diagnostic criteria, medical treatment, and nursing care.
