OBJECTIVE: To investigate maternal and perinatal outcomes in cases of fulminant viral hepatitis in late pregnancy (FVHILP). METHODS: A multicenter retrospective study was conducted. The records of 40 patients with FVHILP were retrieved from 3 hospitals in China. To analyze the influence of mode of delivery on maternal and perinatal outcomes, women were allocated to the cesarean delivery group or the spontaneous vaginal delivery (SVD) group. To study the relationship between maternal outcome and perinatal outcome, patients were allocated to the maternal survival group or the non-survival group. RESULTS: There were no significant differences between the cesarean group and the SVD group in clinical manifestations or laboratory indices before delivery, or in fatality rate (P>0.05 for all), whereas there were significant differences in newborn weight, 1-minute Apgar score, and incidence of severe perinatal asphyxia between the maternal survival group and the non-survival group (P<0.05 for all). CONCLUSION: Maternal and perinatal outcomes in cases of FVHILP were not influenced by mode of delivery, whereas perinatal outcome significantly correlated with maternal outcome.
