Abstract

Spontaneous rupture of the liver during pregnancy associated with preeclampsia is an uncommon and frequently fatal complication. A case of a 61-year-old non-pregnant female is described here who took estrogen replacement for 16 years and presented with spontaneous rupture of the right lobe of the liver with hemoperitoneum. The underlying cause of the rupture was not clear.
