A pregnant woman with anaemia and thrombocytopenia

A 28 year old woman who was 31 weeks pregnant attended the emergency department of our hospital with acute onset of abdominal pain in her right upper quadrant. She had undergone regular antenatal check-ups in the midwifery clinic, with no problems reported. She had no medical history of note and was not taking any drugs. She was a non-smoker and before she was pregnant she rarely drank alcohol. Her cardiovascular, respiratory, and neurological examinations were unremarkable and she had no peripheral oedema. The fetal heart sounds were normal. Her blood pressure was high (136/104 mm Hg) and her pulse was 88 beats/min. The urine protein to creatinine ratio showed no evidence of proteinuria.
