Acute Fatty Liver of Pregnancy

  • Comparison of HELLP, HUS, TTP, DIC, and Acute Fatty Liver of Pregnancy (ALFP) (see Hemolytic-Thrombocytopenic Syndromes)
    -HELLP syndrome must be distinguished from other causes of MAHA, including TTP, HUS, and DIC). Other causes of liver disease in pregnancy include acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFLP), which often presents with fulminant hepatic failure including hypoglycemia, markedly elevated bilirubin levels, and coagulopathy. Hemolysis is not a common feature in AFLP.
