Abstract: Acute fatty liver of pregnancy is a rare cause of jaundice and liver failure associated with high maternal and fetal mortality. We analysed five consecutive cases of acute fatty liver of pregnancy, along with the associated morbidity, mortality and complications. Between January 1999 and January 2008, a total of 68,524 deliveries were assisted at the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department of the Hospital Universitario Materno-Infantil de Canarias (Canaries University Hospital Maternity Ward); among them, five cases of acute fatty liver of pregnancy were identified.
