Older multigravida mothers with preeclampsia (75 to 85 percent) are at higher risk. The aim of the present work was to determine maternal and fetal outcomes of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) in twin pregnancies. Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy is a hepatic disorder characterized by pruritus and an elevation in serum bile acid levels. Liver biopsy reveals periportal hemorrhage and fibrin deposition.25 Recent data suggest that a defect in nitric oxide metabolism may contribute to preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome.26,27, Notable hepatic abnormalities in the HELLP syndrome include hemolysis (with elevated bilirubin levels and lactate dehydrogenase levels greater than 600 IU per L), moderately elevated transaminase levels (AST and ALT levels of 200 to 700 IU per L) and a platelet count less than 100,000 per mL (100 Ã 109 per L).2,3 Patients typically present with right upper quadrant pain and malaise.2,3 Sixty percent of patients exhibit significant weight gain or edema; 50 percent have nausea or emesis.3 No correlation has been noted between extent of hypertension, liver function test abnormalities or liver biopsy findings.25, The maternal and fetal complications of HELLP syndrome are significant.

In surviving patients, liver function and histopathology are normal within six months of delivery.2,36 Intrahepatic hemorrhage has been reported to recur in a minority of subsequent pregnancies.35, An increased risk of fetal loss has been noted in pregnant patients with chronic liver disease.37 Therapy with penicillamine (Cuprimine), trientine (Syprine), prednisone or azathioprine (Imuran) can be safely continued during pregnancy in patients with Wilson's disease or autoimmune hepatitis.37 In patients with primary biliary cirrhosis, ursodeoxycholic acid therapy can be safely continued.37 In patients with chronic hepatitis B or C infection, interferon therapy should be discontinued during pregnancy, as its effects on the fetus are unknown.37, A marked reduction in fertility has been noted in cirrhotic patients.37 Cholestasis may worsen during pregnancy in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis. (HBsAg = hepatitis B surface antigen; ALT = alanine aminotransferase; RUQ = right upper quadrant; DIC = disseminated intravascular coagulopathy; HELLP = hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets), Viral hepatitis is the most common cause of jaundice in pregnancy.4 The course of most viral hepatitis infections (e.g., hepatitis A, B, C and D) is unaltered by pregnancy.6,7 However, a more severe course of viral hepatitis in pregnancy has been noted in patients with hepatitis E and disseminated herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections.2,6,8–11, Hepatitis E is a waterborne virus spread through fecal-oral transmission.
