In 1983 Graham Hughes described a syndrome in which the blood has a tendency to clot. Hughes syndrome is at the root of diverse conditions such as stroke, leg vein thrombosis and recurrent abortion. Hughes Syndrome addresses the complete range of features produced by this common disorder, which is also known as antiphospholipid syndrome. The condition can affect any organ, and is treated using commonly available drugs including low-dose aspirin and warfarin. This timely book fulfils the need for a cross-disciplinary clinical textbook and contains contributions from the leading international authorities. Hughes Syndrome should be read by anyone who might have a clinical or scientific interest in this condition: rheumatologists, haematologists, obstetricians and neurologists
