Answer

Liver function test results may reveal the following (20-25% of patients with eclampsia):

  • Aspartate aminotransferase (SGOT) level higher than 72 IU/L

  • Total bilirubin levels higher than 1.2 mg/dL

  • LDH level higher than 600 IU/L [2]

  • Elevated levels due to hepatocellular injury and HELLP syndrome
