Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome is a condition in which the immune system attacks certain normal blood proteins. It can cause clots in the arteries and veins leading to pregnancy complications, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and damage to organs such as the lungs, brain and kidneys. There is no known cure for antiphospholipid syndrome, but certain medications can be prescribed to reduce the risk of developing the condition.
