Several mechanisms have been proposed to cause or to contribute to the acquired thrombophilic state of these patients, including platelet and red blood cell abnormalities. The increase in white blood cell count, found in most subjects with these disorders, raises the possibility that circulating leukocytes may represent another prothrombotic factor, as… CONTINUE READING
