To the Editor: The recent article by the Obstetric Medicine Group of Australasia alluded to the increasing relevance and importance of thrombophilia screening following adverse pregnancy outcomes, namely recurrent miscarriage, stillbirth, retarded intrauterine growth and pre-eclampsia.1 Formerly, these outcomes were generally attributed to "placental insufficiency", where a cause was not readily identified.
