Antiphospholipid syndrome is primarily a disorder of hypercoagulable state and systemic thrombosis, which can be both arterial and venous.

Patients with antiphospholipid syndrome often present with respiratory failure, stroke, renal impairment, and cutaneous manifestations and follow a fulminant course.
