Pregnancy in patients with cirrhosis of the liver is uncommon. We reviewed 9 pregnancies in 7 patients with cirrhosis. One patient conceived within 1 month of diagnosis and in another the disease was diagnosed during the index pregnancy. Four patients has associated portal hypertension and 1 of them conceived after lienorenal shunt. Complications associated with these pregnancies were jaundice (1) jaundice plus ascites (2) and gastrointestinal bleeding (1). In 2 patients endoscopic sclerotherapy was done during the index pregnancy. The incidence of preterm delivery was 50% (4 of 8) and the majority (75%) occurred in pregnancies where associated complications were present. There was 1 maternal death in the postpartum period due to fulminant hepatic failure.
