Lupus anticoagulant

Last revised by Dr David Luong on 27 Jul 2021

Lupus anticoagulant refers to an immunoglobulin that binds to phospholipids and proteins associated with cell membranes. The name lupus "anticoagulant" is in fact a misnomer where it is a prothrombotic agent. Patient's with lupus anticoagulant have a primary hypercoagulable state and a greater propensity for thrombosis.
