Anti-phospholipid antibody (APLA) syndrome is defined by the presence of thrombo-embolic complications and pregnancy morbidity in the presence of persistently increased titers of APLA syndrome. Its clinical presentation can be diverse and any organ can be involved with a current impact in the most surgical and medical specialties. Here, the case of a 34-year-old young lady with APLA syndrome presented with the cerebral venous thrombosis and subsequently deep vein thrombosis of the left leg veins. Three classes of APLAs (IgG, IgM and activated protein C) were elevated. There were no clinical or laboratory evidence for other autoimmune or systemic illnesses. The patient is under treatment of Ruksha Tikshna Virechana (purgation) with Haritaki (Terminalia chebula Retz.) and Goarka (extract of cow's urine) with the concept of Kaphaja Shotha (nonpitting edema) and got significant result in both subjective and objective parameters.
