Abstract

The best therapy regimen for refractory obstetrical antiphospholipid syndrome remains to be determined. Additional treatments with steroids, plasma exchanges and immunoglobulins failed to show any beneficial effect. We present a case of a woman who had a better pregnancy outcome after the administration of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as additional treatment. Furthermore, we highlighted that HCQ was able to dramatically reduce the antiphospholipid antibodies levels.
