Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The spectrum of liver disease in pregnancy includes liver disease unrelated to pregnancy, those that occur with increased frequency or severity in pregnancy and liver disease specific to pregnancy. Diseases of the liver unique to pregnancy reliably occur at specific points in the gestational spectrum. Thus, gestational age, a comprehensive history and a clinically driven diagnostic evaluation is critical in approaching a pregnant patient with abnormal liver chemistries or function. Early recognition of these conditions is important and while management may be expectant, some require targeted therapy or necessitate prompt delivery, which can be life saving to both mother and child.
