    Abstract:

    The ongoing research and scientific debate on pathophysiology, classification, nomenclature and diagnosis of antiphospholipid syndrome illustrates the complexity of cellular membranes, their dynamic interplay with various components in circulating blood, and often tenuous balance between normal hemostasis and thrombosis. This main objective of this lecture is to succinctly identify the features of normal vs. pathological coagulation, and to familiarize the audience with the inextricable, and ever-evolving role of laboratory in diagnostic process of antiphospholipid syndrome.
