Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune pathological disorder which is most common in females. We report a case of 33 year old male with no co-morbidities who is a non-alcoholic, non-smoker presented with aphasia and MRI brain revealed acute infarct in occipito parietal lobe. On further evaluation for young stroke, hypercoagulation work-up was done and diagnosed to have  Anti phospholipid antibodies (APLA) triple positivity (β2 glycoprotein Ig G, Cardiolipin antibody Ig G, lupus anticoagulant). He was treated with anticoagulation, single antiplatelet.This case reports highlights the importance of evaluation of  all thrombotic events for its underlying etiology and therefore prevents its recurrence which can sometimes even be fatal.
