Abstract

A 24-year-old female at 34-week gestation, presented with malaise, nausea, vomiting, jaundice, and absent foetal movements. A clinical diagnosis of acute fatty liver of pregnancy was made. Although early caesarean section was performed, postoperative course was complicated by acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) sepsis, and continuing coagulopathy. Supportive management in an intensive care unit resulted in successful outcome.
