We present a patient with toxemia of pregnancy and the HELLP syndrome [hemolysis (H), elevated liver enzymes (EL), and a low platelet count (LP)] resulting in massive hepatic necrosis. Cross-sectional imaging, including sonography, computed tomography, and nuclear medicine, was instrumental in the diagnosis and differentiation from hepatic abnormalities of other pregnancy related entities especially acute fatty liver of pregnancy.
