3 doctors agree
In brief: Uncommon
Acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFP) is rare, occurring in about 1 in 10, 000 pregnancies.
It is quite serious and can be fatal (to mom and / or baby) - good outcomes require prompt diagnosis and treatment, which usually incudes delivery of the baby as soon as the mother is stable. Recurrance risk is about 25% for subsequent pregnancies.
