The main objective of this investigation was to observe difficulties and problems encountered by a pregnant woman during emergency in order to find amicable solutions in such cases. It was noticed that spontaneous liver rupture is a rare and life-threatening condition. It is usually associated with pregnancy, although it can occur with other liver pathology and, very rarely, in isolation. It is difficult to diagnose and suggest numerous treatment options under this condition which could add to the complexity of the problem. Liver disease is an uncommon complication of pregnancy, although one that must be recognized early because of its potential grave consequences for mother and child. Pregnant women, who develop nausea, vomiting, anorexia, jaundice, dark urine, itching or abdominal pain, needed much attention. Initial blood tests should cover complete blood count and the liver function test. It is recommended to use the gestational age of the pregnancy as the best guide for the differential diagnosis of liver disease in pregnancy.
