Acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFLP) is a rare and serious disorder occurring in the third trimester of pregnancy. It can cause both maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Its presentation can be confusing, and differential diagnosis of other liver pathology needs to be considered. Prompt and aggressive management is required to save maternal life. We present a case of AFLP at a tertiary care hospital in Dubai.
