Answer

Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is a heterogenous disorder in terms of clinical manifestations and range of autoantibodies. In 2006, revised criteria for the diagnosis of APS were published in an international consensus statement. [10] At least one clinical criterion and one laboratory criterion (discussed further in Lab Studies) must be present for a patient to be classified as having APS.
