Antiphospholipid antibody associated thrombosis in juvenile chronic arthritis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A child with systemic onset juvenile chronic arthritis (jCA) who developed a bilateral femuropopliteal vein thrombosis after plaster immobilisation following a tibial fracture is described. When the thrombosis was diagnosed, antiphospholipid antibodies detected either as lupus anticoagulant and anticardiolipin antibodies were found. This suggests that short term prophylactic antithrombotic treatment should be considered in antiphospholipid antibody positive JCA patients who require immobilisation after fractures of demineralised bones.
