    Abstract

    A case of fatty liver of pregnancy with subcapsular hematoma of the liver caused by intravenous heparin treatment is reported. The heparin was given for the thrombophlebitis of leg veins. The patient expired suddenly as a result of rupture of the subcapsular hematoma of the liver causing massive intraperitoneal hemorrhage. The pathophysiology and complications of the fatty liver of pregnancy are discussed.
