Abstract

MIRANDA, Carlos Henrique et al. Coronary thrombosis as the first complication of antiphospholipid syndrome. Arq. Bras. Cardiol. [online]. 2012, vol.98, n.4, pp.e66-e69. ISSN 0066-782X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0066-782X2012000400014.

The antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune thrombophilia, characterized by the presence of plasma antibodies against phospholipids, associated with recurrent episodes of venous and/or arterial thrombosis and gestational morbidity (especially recurrent miscarriage). We report the case of a young female patient diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) associated with the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies for a long time, presenting with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) due to proximal thrombosis of the anterior descending artery as the first clinical complication of APS.

Keywords : Lupus erythematosus, systemic; antiphospholipid syndrome [complications]; coronary thrombosis; myocardial infarction.
