Catastrophic Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Catastrophic Antiphospholipid Syndrome: Introduction

Catastrophic Antiphospholipid Syndrome: A very rare disorder where the blood clotting system becomes dysfunctional and clots too easily due to the abnormal presence of antphospholipid antibodies. It results in blood flow blockages to various body organs. It is possible that the condition has autoimmune origins. The disorder is often triggered by infections, certain drugs (e.g. anticoagulants), minor surgery and hysterectomy. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Catastrophic Antiphospholipid Syndrome is available below.
