Abstract

Antiphospholipid syndrome in association with vasculitis is highlighted in this report. The combination of thrombotic and inflammatory processes resulted in endocarditis, aneurysm formation and thrombosis. To our knowledge this is the first presentation of a large vessel aneurysm in these conditions. Anticoagulation and immunosuppression are the treatment modalities of choice.
