Abstract

 Antiphospholipid syndrome is associated with HELLP (Haemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes and Low Platelets) syndrome as a continuum of thrombotic microangiopathies. Subcapsular liver haematoma is a rare presentation of HELLP syndrome. A 38-year-old woman at 33 weeks gestation presented with HELLP syndrome complicated by acute hepatic rupture. She had background history of antiphospholipid syndrome with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. Postoperative course was complicated by hepatic failure, sepsis and haemodynamic instability which was managed successfully. Anaesthetists need to be aware of serious complications like haemorrhage, thrombosis and multi-organ failure when presented with HELLP syndrome and antiphosholipid syndrome.

Keywords: HELLP Syndrome; Antiphospholipid Syndrome; Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis; Subcapsular Liver Haematoma; Hepatic Rupture
