OBJECTIVE: To review case reports of hepatic hematoma/rupture in women with pre-eclampsia/eclampsia. METHODS: MEDLINE, SciELO, and LILACS databases were searched for case reports of pre-eclampsia/eclampsia with hepatic hematoma/rupture. Only articles written in English, Spanish, French, or Portuguese and published between 1990 and 2010 were reviewed. RESULTS: In total, 180 cases of hepatic hematoma or rupture were identified: 18 (10.0%) with subcapsular hematoma without hepatic rupture; and 162 (90.0%) with capsule rupture. Twelve (6.7%) cases were associated with eclampsia plus hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelet count (HELLP) syndrome. Average age was 30.9±5.0years, 74/129 (57.4%) women were parous, and cesarean delivery was performed in 132/162 (81.5%) cases. The right lobule was the most frequently affected 77/100 (77.0%). The total maternal mortality rate was 22.2% during the 21years; however, it decreased to 16.4% in the last decade studied. The perinatal mortality rate was 30.7% and was very similar during the 2decades. CONCLUSION: HELLP syndrome is a frequent diagnosis (92.8%) in hepatic hemorrhage/rupture. The major reduction in maternal mortality rate was probably associated with advances in resuscitation, intensive-care medicine, and surgical intervention, including liver transplantation and arterial embolization.
