Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFLP) is a rare, but serious life-threatening clinical entity, the etiology of which is unknown. The clinical presentation of this disease is varied and timely diagnosis often difficult. Since multiorgan involvement (and dysfunction) complicates diagnosis, no uniform peripartum obstetric and anesthetic recommendations can be made. Still, once the diagnosis of AFLP is established, prompt delivery is indicated. We herein present a case of acute fatty liver and hepatic failure that developed during the third trimester of pregnancy. Favorable maternal and fetal outcome was accomplished.
