The association between acute fatty liver of pregnancy and fatty acid oxidation disorders.

Abstract

Acute fatty liver of pregnancy is a relatively rare but potentially fatal liver disorder of late pregnancy. Recent advances in molecular diagnostic procedures provide evidence of a genetic basis for this condition and a link to offspring disorders in fatty acid oxidation. This relationship implies the need for genetic testing and follow-up of at-risk women and their neonates.
