Abstract

Anti-cardiolipin antibodies (ACA) were investigated in the serum of 79 patients with lupus erythematosus by means of ELISA method. 34 patients (43%) had ACA in their serum. 63.6% of the patients with ACA had 4 or more ARA criteria and 75% of them had malar rash. None of our patients had the 'anti-cardiolipin antibodies syndrome' but three of them with thrombocytopenia had ACA.
