New noninvasive imaging methods are very effective in the detection and differentiation of anatomic characteristics and accompanying symptoms observed in the course of the Hellp syndrome. Within the clinical picture presented the evidence of brain injury as a result of intravascular coagulopathy was predominant. CT confirmed the presence of brain lesions.
