Acute fatty liver of pregnancy: A clinicopathologic study of 35 cases
TLDR
An optimistic outlook for patients with acute fatty liver of pregnancy is found due to early termination of the pregnancy as well as the recognition of milder cases, and no histologic overlap was observed, suggesting that they represent distinct etiologic entities. Expand
