The antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) was reported in the early 1980s as a triad of manifestations. Since than it became one of the most systemic conditions. Almost any organ and tissue may be involved in the disease, including the brain, the heart, the placenta, the endocrine system, the blood, the kidneys and many more. In the article it is suggested to add to the syndrome the word systemic in analogy to its sister condition, systemic lupus erythematosus.
