Anti-Phospholipid Syndrome In Nigeria: Report Of Five Cases

OO Adelowo, S Oguntona

Abstract


Five cases of secondary anti-phospholipid syndrome (APS) are presented and
literature reviewed. Pregnancy loss was the most common presentation but neurologic manifestations are also seen. IgG ACA was more commonly seen than IgM ACA. Although APS has been infrequently reported in black Africans, an awareness of this condition is needed especially among females with previous recurrent pregnancy losses.
