Preeclampsia HELLP syndrome

HELLP syndrome is a life-threatening liver disorder thought to be a type of severe preeclampsia. It is characterized by Hemolysis (destruction of red blood cells), Elevated Liver enzymes (which indicate liver damage), and Low Platelet count.

About 10% to 20% of women who have severe preeclampsia develop HELLP.1 In most cases, this happens before 35 weeks of pregnancy, though it can also develop right after childbirth.

Symptoms of HELLP syndrome include:

Headache.
Vision problems.
Pain in the upper right abdomen (liver).
Shoulder, neck, and other upper body pain (this pain also originates in the liver).
Fatigue.
Nausea and vomiting.
Seizure.
