Abstract

A case of the diagnosis of acute fatty liver of pregnancy proved by biopsy is described. In this case computed tomography showed decreased attenuation over the liver, and this attenuation is compatible with fatty infiltration. Computed tomography may be useful in the differential diagnosis of jaundice in pregnancy.
