Abstract

HELLP syndrome (Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes, Low Platelet count) was recognized as a severe form of preeclampsia some years ago. The diagnosis of HELLP syndrome requires the presence of hemolysis, based on abnormal peripheral smear, elevated indirect bilirubin levels or low serum haptoglobin levels, in association with significant elevation in liver enzymes and platelet count below 150 000/- l. Definitive therapy is delivery. The presence of this syndrome is associated with increased risk of adverse outcome for both the mother and the fetus.
