Abstract

Acute fatty liver is rare but life threatening complication and usually manifests late in pregnancy. The mean gestational age onset of symptoms has been reported 35-37 weeks of gestation. Recently, several reports revealed acute fatty liver can develops in the second trimester of pregnancy. Recent reports suggest that early diagnosis and delivery decreased the mortality of fetus and mother. We have experienced a case of the second trimester onset acute fatty liver, in pregnancy so we report the case with brief review.
