Lupus results totally confused!

balamuti profile image

I am totally confused with these recent results!:

Positive DRVVT and SCT in October 2017 with borderline CT result in November 2016. On repeat in January 2018 the DRVVT was positive but the SCT was negative. A more recent one in July showed that DRVVT was negative but had a positive Lupus anticoagulant by SCT.

Can anyone help at all?
