COLLADO, María Victoria et al. Triple negative breast cancer, repeated abortions and severe digital ischemia. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2021, vol.81, n.2, pp.289-292. ISSN 0025-7680.

The present case corresponds to a woman with history of three miscarrieges less than10 weeks and breast cancer, who develops severe digital ischemia after the second cycle of capecitabine. Positive antiphospholipid antibodies were determined. Patients with obstetric antiphospholipid syndrome have an increased risk of developing cancer, and severe digital ischemia could be an unusual form of presentation of the antiphospholipid syndrome in patients with cancer. This case is presented to highlight the benefit of researching and making an early diagnosis of these characteristics of the disease.

Keywords : Obstetric antiphospholipid syndrome; Digital ischemia; Neoplasia.
