The role of antibodies in the occurrence of recurrent spontaneous miscarriage is well known. However there are many controversial issues in the management of habitual abortion. This paper describes the effect of Protein A immunoadsorption on serum levels of these antibodies and its impact on a case of a successfully treated woman in a outpatient department without need for a central venous catheter. Given the favourable clinical results described in our paper we think it may be relevant for some worse cases in clinical practice and will interest your readers.
