Abstract:

Catastrophic Antiphospholipid Syndrome (CAPS) is a condition defined by multiple thromboembolic occurrences within a week period in a patient with positive antiphospholipid antibodies. It has been reported in literature in patients with ulcerative colitis. We will describe an atypical case of ulcerative colitis, with no previous history of antiphospholipid syndrome, who developed CAPS after surgical management of her Leriche syndrome. We also provide a review of the literature to identify the importance of CAPS for clinicians to be aware of this syndrome when the patient is not known to have antiphospholipid syndrome.

Keywords:

Catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome; Antiphospholipid syndrome; Hypercoagulable state; Ulcerative colitis
