Article information

A presença de anticorpos antifosfolípidos é frequente em doentes com infecção VIH principalmente em fases avançadas da doença. Apesar da elevada prevalência de anticorpos antifosfolípidos, a sua associação a fenómenos trombóticos é rara, estando apenas descritos alguns casos.

Os autores apresentam um caso clínico cuja manifestação inaugural de uma infecção VIH foi um tromboembolismo pulmonar associado à presença de anticoagulante lúpico.
