Abstract

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education: The catastrophic variant of the antiphospholipid syndrome (CASP) is defined as a potential life-threatening variant of antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), which is characterized by multiple small-vessel thrombosis that can lead to organ failure especially renal deterioration. This vaso-occlusive nephropathy mainly affects arterioles, interlobular arteries and glomerular tufts. However, interstitial area and tubules maybe subsequently involved. © 2013, Society of Diabetic Nephropathy Prevention. All rights reserved.
