Abstract
The causes of hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelet count (HELLP) syndrome or hepatic hemorrhage as a serious complication of HELLP are not known. Although spontaneous hepatic rupture associated with HELLP syndrome is a rare complication of pregnancy, hepatic rupture results in life-threatening complications. The cornerstone of prognosis is early diagnosis. Hepatic rupture in HELLP syndrome should be considered a differential diagnosis in pregnant patients with sudden onset of abdominal pain or hypotension. We report a case of 30-year-old primigravida female with spontaneous hepatic rupture caused by HELLP syndrome as a presenting symptom of right upper quadrant abdominal pain.
