    Our purpose was to describe the incidence and effects of serious obstetric complications on maternal outcome in pregnancies complicated by HELLP syndrome.


    A prospective cohort study was performed on 442 pregnancies with HELLP syndrome managed at this center from August 1977 through July 1992.


    Of 437 women who had 442 pregnancies with HELLP syndrome ; 309 (70%) of the cases occurred ante partum and 133 (30%) post partum ; 149 (11%) developed at<27 weeks and 80 (18%) at term.

    Maternal mortality was 1.1% (five patients)

    Serious maternal morbidity included disseminated intravascular coagulation (21%), abruptio placentae (16%), acute renal failure (7.7%), pulmonary edema (6%), subcapsular liver hematoma (0.9%), and retinal detachment (0.9%).
