About this book

Antiphospholipid Syndrome or Hughes Syndrome was the major medical discovery of the late 20th century; for many it is still deemed a ‘new’ disease. As a result many people are now living with the disease with little knowledge of its causes, effects and available treatments. Many of these patient’s are also struggling to cope with the daily demands posed by living with such an illness.

Understanding Hughes Syndrome: case studies for patients, presents 50 case histories, each covered independently to give a comprehensive view of the vast spectrum that is Antiphospholipid Syndrome. Neurological aspects and effects are covered in approximately half the text, with the remainder covering everything from repeated miscarriages to easy bruising.

The provision of personal accounts of Antiphospholipid Syndrome makes this book the ultimate companion to people living with the disease; giving not only the facts but also the personal touch that many people need when coming to terms, and dealing, with their condition.

 

Understanding Hughes Syndrome: case studies for patients is written by Graham R.V. Hughes, MD, FRCP, a world-renowned expert in the field of rheumatology, and as the name suggests discoverer of Hughes or Antiphospholipid Syndrome. Hughes is also the Head of The London Lupus Centre, Founder and Editor of the international journal Lupus, and life president of the lupus patient’s charity ‘Lupus UK’.
