Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome(APS) has been proposed for those patients with systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE) or with other connective tissue disease who have antiphospholipid antibody and manifestations of venous thrombosis, arterial occlusions, thrombocytopenia, hemolytic anemia, recurrent fetal loss, leg ulcers, and livedo reticularis. A primary antiphospholipid antibody syndrome(PARS), implying those patients who do not have any features of lupus or other connective tissue disease, has been mentioned in many reports but not definitely defined in our country, We recently experienced one case of primary antiphospholipid syndrome with neurologic manifestation. We present this case with a review of the literature.
