Acute fatty liver of pregnancy is rare but can be potentially fatal complication of the third trimester of pregnancy. It is characterized by jaundice, coagulopathy, central nervous system disturbance, and microvesicular fat infiltration of liver on its biopsy specimens.

Recommended treatment is immediate delivery with maximal supportive care. We have experienced a case of acute fatty liver of pregnancy and reported with brief review of related literatures.
