This book discusses the major clinical features of the antiphospholipid syndrome. It provides a quick, practical and reader-friendly reference for the different problems that might be encountered in clinical practice. Treatment is a major concern in an area where evidence-based medicine is sparse and there are chapters dedicated to diagnosis from a laboratory point of view. Further chapters focus on subjects including pregnancy management, arterial thrombosis and prognosis. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of this disease, the primary readership groups are general and internal medicine physicians and sub-specialties, including rheumatologists, hematologists, cardiovascular physicians, and obstetricians, among others.

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)
