[Severe HELLP syndrome with temporary kidney and lung failure].
Geburtshilfe Frauenheilkd. 1996 Aug; 56(8):443-6.GF

Abstract

This report is on a severe case fo a HELLP-syndrome (H haemolysis, EL elevated liver enzymes, and LP low platelets). A 32-year old gravida developed severe preeclampsia with epigastric pain at 33 weeks' gestation. During a few hours post partum she showed disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and required intensive care. The severe HELLP-syndrome was combined with a fast increasing acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and acute oligo-anuric renal failure. She was treated in the intensive-care unit for several days with artificial respiration, 10 acute haemodialyses, 4 plasma exchanges with fresh-frozen plasma and many blood and platelet transfusions. An early Caesarean section and treatment in the intensive care unit managed to turn the otherwise complicated progression of the disease. It is pointed out that plasma exchange with fresh-frozen plasma is a rarely employed treatment.
