Abstract Anticardiolipin antibody (aCL) screening using an ELISA technique, in 76 patients of Indian origin with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), showed aCL in 27.63 per cent of patients. This prevalence was much lower than that reported in the Western population. The presence of aCL showed positive correlations with recurrent abortions and organic neurological lesions seen in SLE.
