  • CONCLUSIONS: Antiphospholipid syndrome is an acquired thrombophilia caused by circulating antibodies against a heterologous group of phospholipids. Recent literature has identified a causative relation between APS and primary adrenal insufficiency (AI), identifying it as its most common endocrine manifestation. Surgeries along with inflammation or hormones have been identified as precipitating factors. Spontaneous haemorrhagic infarction of the adrenal glands has been observed in patients with APS in the postoperative period during anticoagulant treatment. Signs and symptoms are non-specific and are easily confused with those of the underlying condition.Early recognition and prompt treatment of adrenal insufficiency due to APS in surgical patient is of vital importance. Patients correctly diagnosed and treated that survive the critical phase have a better prognosis regarding restoration of adrenal function.
