The association of decompensated cirrhosis and pregnancy is rare. Portal hypertension exposure to gastrointestinal bleeding from a ruptured esophageal varix may at any time complicate the course of the disease. We report the case of a 24-year-old patient who delivered at 35 weeks/four days of gestation with decompensated cirrhosis secondary to viral hepatitis B; icterus, oedema, and ascites were present. The postpartum course was uneventful despite the biological disorder of coagulation.
