Anticardiolipin (aCL) antibodies have been described in diverse clinical situations, linked to the risk of thrombosis in different vascular locations. They have been rarely studied in renal diseases, and occasionally they have been associated with glomerular thrombosis. We analyzed the incidence of aCL (isotypes IgG, IgA, and IgM) in samples, taken during the acute phase of the disease, from 27 well-documented patients having acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis. Twelve cases were… CONTINUE READING
