Abstract

Acute hepatitis A is a rarely seen infection during preg­nancy. In terms of clinical and laboratory findings, it can be interfere with acute fatty liver disease which can be quite mortal during pregnancy. Since liver function tests are el­evated in both conditions, hepatitis A infection should also be kept in mind in differential diagnosis. We present a 30 year-old pregnant woman with 35 weeks of gestation who presented to our clinic with a suspection of acute fatty liver disease but finally diagnosed as acute hepatitis A in­fection.
