INTRODUCTION: Spontaneous hepatic rupture associated with pregnancy is a rare and very serious complication associated with eclampsia or pre-eclampsia. CASE REPORT: We report a case of hepatic rupture following eclampsia at 27 weeks gestation which was managed successfully by selective hepatic artery embolisation as an adjunct to liver packing. CONCLUSION: Selective embolisation of the hepatic artery is an effective means of therapy for hepatic artery bleeding and is an adjunct to liver packing in spontaneous hepatic rupture in eclamptic patients.
