In brief: Fatty liver

Acute fatty liver of pregnancy (aflp) is a rare, potentially fatal complication that occurs in the third trimester or early postpartum period.
Although the exact pathogenesis is unknown, this disease has been linked to an abnormality in fetal fatty acid metabolism. Early diagnosis of aflp sometimes can be difficult because it shares features with other common conditions such as pre-eclampsia, vira.
