Abstract

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has spread across the world in a relentless and merciless way. As the pandemic escalates, varied presentations and complications of the disease have been reported from all over the world. Pregnant women fall into a vulnerable group who have been reported to have more severe disease and need of intensive care when compared to non-pregnant women of the same age group. Preeclampsia is one of the most common co-morbidity seen in pregnant women with COVID-19 infection. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection can lead to worsening of pre-existing co-morbidities and extra vigilance is required in such cases. Here we present a case of a pregnant woman with COVID-19 infection with preeclampsia complicated by acute fatty liver of pregnancy and acute kidney injury. Although a rare diagnosis, a prompt multidisciplinary approach helped in achieving a favorable maternal and neonatal outcome.
