The antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is characterized by vascular thrombosis despite of prolongation of coagulation profile in laboratory findings and pregnancy morbidity in the presence of antiphospholipid antibody. It occurs primarily or secondarily to autoimmune disease. This case report concerns a pelviscopic left ovarian cystectomy in a 32-year-old female with APS and systemic lupus erythematosis. To manage the hypercoagulability, oral warfarin and low molecular weight haparin were given pre- and postoperatively. In perioperative period, we monitored activated clotting time to prevent intraoperative thrombosis and tried to avoid dehydration, hypothermia and infection.
