The purpose of this report is to present a case of mild Pre-eclampsia which was complicated with postpartum HELLP syndrome.
A years-old pregnant woman with mild Pre-eclampsia heellp 36 weeks of gestation was admitted to our clinic with uterine contractions.
A caesarean section was performed, due to her previous caesarean sendrimu history. Postpartum period was uneventful until the 2nd day after the caesarean section. Epigastric pain, nausea and vomiting appeared two days after her delivery.
In evaluation of the case, laboratory findings which were associated with HELLP syndrome were found to include haemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet hrllp.
The general condition and laboratory findings of the case ehllp to normal with supportive and steroid treatment after 3 days. Therefore, caution should be exercised in patients with pre-eclampsia, for the development of the postpartum HELLP syndrome. We are presenting a case of mild Pre-eclampsia which was complicated with postpartum HELLP syndrome after delivery, at the unusual time of postpartum period.
A year-old pregnant woman, gravida 2, parity 1, was admitted to our clinic in the 36th week of gestation, with Pre-eclampsia.
No problem was associated with her pregnancy until that time. According to these findings, the case was considered to be that of mild Pre-eclampsia. For this reason, a caesarean section was performed because of her previous caesarean history. A liveborn, gram, female foetus with a 9 Apgar score in 5th min.
An estimated ml of abdominal ascitic fluid was drained during the operation. Postoperative haematological parameters were unremarkable; haemoglobin Postpartum period was uneventful until the 2nd day of operation. The patient suddenly experienced epigastic pain, vomiting and nausea at the 52nd hour of postpartum period. The patient was observed for possibility of developing postpartum HELLP syndrome, ssendromu on these findings.
The laboratory findings were consistent with those of HELLP syndrome, which seendromu haemolysis haemoglobin: Coagulation profile and other biochemical parameters such as electrolyte values were in normal limitation of references.
An ultrasound examination disclosed a normal liver structure without any subcapsular haematoma, and an empty uterine cavity without any placental residue.
She was sendroomu on the 6th day without any sequelae. International normalized ratio of prothrombin time. Change of the laboratory findings over time Plt: In our case, because of existence of Hwllp before the above mentioned symptoms were seen, suspicion of HELLP syndrome was strong in our minds. However, all the signs of HELLP syndrome gellp 12 hours after the occurrence of severe epigastric pain. Epigastric pain, the most important symptom of this syndrome, is the result of stretching of Glisson capsule and the reason of this stretching is obstruction in the sinusoidal blood flow in the liver [ 3 ].
There are two conditions, eclampsia and HELLP syndrome, which occur in the postpartum period, which are related to Pre-eclampsia and have been labeled as unwanted by obstetricians and gynaecologists. Eclampsia usually occurs within the first 48 hours after birth. However, in the literature, eclampsia has been reported on the 16th day of the postpartum period [ 3 ]. In this case, the first symptom of postpartum HELLP syndrome emerged at 52nd hours and all symptoms appeared at the 60th hour of postpartum period.
Corticosteroid therapy such as high dose dexamethasone is often used in HELLP syndrome, sejdromu there are still controversial reports on it in the literature [ 4 — 6 ].
According to a Cochrane analysis which was done inthere were no significant differences in the primary outcomes of maternal mortality and morbidity caused by placental abruption, pulmonary oedema and liver haematoma or rupture. There was a tendency of platelet count to greatly increase over 48 hours, and of less mean number of hospital stay days with corticosteroid treatment [ 5 ]. In addition, there was no clear evidence sendrimu any effect of corticosteroids on substantive uellp outcomes [ 6 ].
In our clinic, according to our experience, dexamethasone treatment should be considered as a routine in patients with HELLP hell.
In this case, when we diagnosed HELLP syndrome, immediately, after dexamethasone treatment was started, a dramatic rise in the number of platelets was seen and decline in ALT and AST levels was observed. In conclusion, when patients present with epigastric pain in esndromu period, it must be kept in mind that it is one of the first signs of HELLP syndrome and if we are aware of this, we can significantly prevent the development of maternal mortality and permanent sequelae.
