Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) and multiple sclerosis (MS) are two diseases that may show similar clinical and radiological findings and sometimes cause confusion. In the presence of thrombosis, repetitious abortion history, and lupus anticoagulant antibodies or anticardiolipin antibodies, APS should be considered. However, in previous studies, autoantibody levels were detected as being high in MS patients when compared to the normal population.
