Hughes Syndrome: Highways and Bywaysis a handy and easy-to-read guide to the main features of Hughes syndrome. There has been worldwide interest in this 'new' syndrome (first described in 1983). A clotting tendency which can potentially affect any organ in the body, it is:

* responsible for 1 in 5 recurrent miscarriages (now successfully treated with aspirin and heparin)

* responsible for 1 in 5 young (under 45) strokes

* a major cause of early heart attacks

* responsible for 1 in 5 deep vein thromboses

* an important cause of migraine.

Hughes Syndrome: Highways and Bywaysis a valuable resource for professionals with an interest in the subject, as well as general practitioners and patients.
