Hughes Syndrome: Highways and Byways is a handy and easy-to-read guide to the main features of Hughes syndrome. There has been worldwide interest in this 'new' syndrome (first described in 1983). A clotting tendency which can potentially affect any organ in the body, it is:

*         responsible for 1 in 5 recurrent miscarriages (now successfully treated with aspirin and heparin)

*         responsible for 1 in 5 young (under 45) strokes

*         a major cause of early heart attacks

*         responsible for 1 in 5 deep vein thromboses

*         an important cause of migraine.


Hughes Syndrome: Highways and Byways is a valuable resource for professionals with an interest in the subject, as well as general practitioners and patients.
