Recurrent acute fatty liver of pregnancy

Recurrent acute fatty liver of pregnancy

American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology 163(2): 534-538

The first reported case of recurrent acute fatty liver of pregnancy confirmed by biopsy is described. In this case a high index of suspicion led to an early diagnosis and intervention with resultant improved maternal and fetal outcome. Electron microscopic examination of a liver biopsy specimen proved more beneficial in confirmation of the diagnosis compared with routine microscopic examination.
