Abstract

Acute liver failure during pregnancy is a rare and potentially fatal occurrence. Sickle cell (SC) crises, when precipitated by pregnancy, usually affect patients with SC disease. We report a case of peripartum acute liver failure due to SC vaso-occlusive crisis of the liver in a patient with SC trait.
