Ocular Findings in Women With Primary Antiphospholipid Syndrome


Brief description of study

Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune disease characterized by systemic thrombosis and bad obstetric history. APS secondary to another medical disorder is the most common. Visual and ocular changes e.g. vaso-occlusive disease of retinal and choroidal vessels are found in patients with secondary APS. Patients with primary APS have also been reported to have ocular changes e.g. retinal vascular occlusion

The aim of our study to detect prevalence of ocular changes in women diagnosed with primary APS and correlation of these changes with adverse obstetric outcome. If a correlation is present, ocular findings in women with APS could be used in the future as a predictor for poor obstetric outcome.
