Bringing together the various areas of specialization that may encounter antiphospholipid syndrome, a section on clinical features focuses on various organs in turn, explaining how antiphospholipid syndrome may be manifested in the organ in question.  Furthermore, guidance on antiphospholipid syndrome in pregnancy and pediatric antiphospholipid syndrome is included.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a wonderful quick reference covering all of the most relevant topics of antiphospholipid syndrome in clinical practice. I have already started to use this book in my clinic … . Wonderfully written, the book will be an excellent learning tool for both medicine residents and rheumatology fellows. … The best quality of this book is its brief treatment of all aspects of this complicated disease.” (Rebecca R. Brinker, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2010)
