Y S Nam, S Y Han, D H Choi, T K Yoon, K Y Cha
Antiphospholipid antibody is an immunoglobulin which may be of any class and which reacts with any phospholipid. For clinical use the definition of the term anti-phospholipid antibody is usually restricted to IgG and/or IgM antibody directed against the negatively charged phopholipids, cardiolipin, phosphatidyl inositol, phosphatidyl serine, or phosphatidic acid. The antigen of the serological test for syphilis is cardiolipin; negatively charged phopholipids are understood to be antigens to which lupus anticoagulants are directed. The term 'anticardiolipin' antibody syndrome, 'antiphospholipid' antibody syndrome, and 'lupus anticoagulant' syndrome are often, imprecisely, used interchangeably We have experienced a case of recurrent spontaneous abortion with antiphospholipid antibody. So we report this case with a brief review of literatures.
