We present a patient diagnosed with intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy at 30 weeks 6 days of gestation. She presented with complaint of pruritus associated with hepatic cytolysis and elevated transaminases revealed by laboratory tests. The emphasis must be laid on importance of early diagnosis of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy to improve the fetal prognosis and to eliminate other severe conditions associated with hepatic cytoloysis syndrome and pruritus.


Keywords: Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy, pruritus, transaminases, hepatic cytolysis
