Abstract

At present, treatment is aimed at preventing recurrent thrombosis, using aspirin (or clopidogrel (Plavix)), low molecular weight heparin or warfarin (Coumadin).

Despite reports of the use of newer ‘biological’ agents in some cases of Hughes syndrome, experience with agents such as rituximab, as well as with the newer anticoagulants such as dabigatran, is limited.
