Abstract

Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome causes many problems that are usually treated by rheumatologists. Included within the manifestations of the syndrome, how-ever, are painful, refractory leg ulcers, which, with the causative vascular damage, may lead to limb loss. The report of such a case, the patient’s course and treatment, and the causes and diagnosis of the syndrome are presented.
