Anti-nuclear antibody (ANA) testing is a cornerstone of autoimmune diagnostics.
The immunological panel showed high anti-nuclear antibody (ANA), anti-double-stranded DNA (anti-dsDNA) antibody and anti-Smith (anti-Sm) antibody titers, with low complement three levels.
Anti-nuclear antibody (ANA), Anti-Ds-DNA antibody was positive and anticardiolipin IgG antibodies were negative, C-reactive protein (CRP) =3.95 mg/L, C3 was decreased and C4 was normal.
Later an extensive search for any underlying hypercoagulable state (3) was performed including protein C and S level, anti-thrombin three levels, factor 5 Leiden and prothrombin gene mutations, anti-phospholipids antibodies, anti-nuclear antibody, and serum homocysteine level, but no abnormality could be demonstrated.
Anti-nuclear antibody (ANA) was greater than 12, anti-dsDNA was 507IU/mL, C3 was 63mg/dL, C4 was 8mg/dL, and anti-cardiolipin IgM was 15.8 mpl.

Anti-nuclear antibody (ANA), ribonucleoprotein (RNP), Sjogren-syndrome--related antigen A (SS-A), Sjogren-syndrome--related B (SS-B), scleroderma antibodies, anti-dsDNA, anti-Smith antibody, thyroglobulin antibody, and anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies were negative.
Anti-nuclear antibody (ANA), anti-double stranded DNA (anti-ds DNA), anticardiolipin, anti-Ro, anti-La, and anti-Scl antibodies were within normal limits.
Hepatitis A, B, and C serology, anti-HIV, autoantibodies including rheumatoid factor, anticyclic-citrullinated peptide, anti-nuclear antibody, antidouble-stranded-DNA, anti-neutrophil-cytoplasmic antibody, anti-smooth-muscle antibody, and anti-mitochondrial antibody were all negative.
