Along with the classic findings of APSGN, the patient had a positive direct antiglobulin test and an anticardiolipin antibody without any typical clinical manifestations of antiphospholipid syndrome APS. This case raises questions of the relationship between Streptococcus and the development of autoimmune hemolytic anemia in children. Our case highlights the possibility that the streptococcal infections in this patient might be responsible for her anemia, either in setting of underlying antiphospholipid antibodies, or in having triggered the development of pathogenic antibodies, which subsequently leads to the clinical evolution of hemolysis. It is presumed that in our case, the anticardiolipin antibody induced by streptococcal infection may play a direct role in the clinical evolution of AIHA.

Describing the presence of anti-annexin V antibodies, cardiolipin and B 2 -glycoprotein 1 in females suffering recurrent pregnancy loss in Medellin, Colombia. Rev Colomb Obstet Ginecol [online]. ISSN Objective: Describing anti-annexin V antibody frequency in a series of females suffering recurrent abortion in Medellin. Materials and methods: A series of cases was compiled, consisting of healthy females attending gynecological consultation who had a background of recurrent pregnancy loss RPL , characterized by two or more abortions during the first three months of pregnancy. Females diagnosed with secondary antiphospholipid syndrome were excluded.
