HELLP is an acronym that refers to a syndrome characterised by haemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and a low platelet (HELLP) count. It is a rare and life-threatening condition that occurs during pregnancy. The most common symptoms of HELLP syndrome include headache, nausea, vomiting, upper right abdominal pain, tenderness and fatigue. Most symptoms and side effects subside within 2–3 days of delivery. Early identification and treatment is essential to prevent complications of HELLP syndrome.
