In brief: Connective Tissue Dx

With a positive ana, you must now characterize it.
The positive anticardiolipin abs need to quatified for the 3 types: igg, igm, and iga. The ones that are likely to cause thrombotic issues are in order: igm, igg, and iga. You need a rheumatologic or immunologic evaluation.
