Abstract

A successful outcome of pregnancy requires an efficient uteroplacental vascular system. Since this system may be compromised by disorders of haemostasis associated with a prothrombotic state, maternal thrombophilia might be a risk factor for fetal loss. Hereditary deficiencies of the naturally occuring anticoagulants are well recognized conditions predisposing to recurrent venous thromboembolism. Since thrombotic phenomena have been implied as a cause of abortion and stillbirth, these deficiencies might increase the risk of fetal demise. We have experienced a case of antiphospholipid syndrome associated with protein C deficiency in patient with recurrent spontaneous abortion. So we report this case with a brief review of literatures.
