Answer

Testing for novel antibodies not recognized in the 2006 criteria can be considered if clinical suspicion is high, although in select cases they may not be commercially available.

Other antiphospholipid (aPL)–associated clinical features recognized by the 2006 consensus statement but not included in the criteria include cardiac valve disease, livedo reticularis, thrombocytopenia, nephropathy, and neurologic manifestations.
