Liver rupture is a rare perinatal complication with high maternal mortality. In a multiparous woman with preeclampsia and Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes, and Low Platelet count (HELLP) syndrome, liver rupture was suspected 10 h after a cesarean section. Laparotomy revealed liver rupture which was treated by perihepatic packing. Eventually, the mother was discharged with her baby 88 days after admission. Clinical symptoms, maternal hemodynamics by Swan-Ganz monitoring, and laboratory findings were not predictive until the emergency situation and the consecutive complications required multidisciplinary management.
