Abstract

Background: HELLP syndrome is associated with high morbidity and mortality which is attributed most commonly to intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) and/or stroke. The presence of other complications further worsens the prognosis. Methods: We present a rare case of HELLP syndrome which presented with ICH and further complicated by seizures, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and acute renal failure. Results: Aggressive surgical and medical management of her ICH, HELLP syndrome and associated complications resulted in good functional recovery. Hypothermia seems to be a good adjunctive in treatment. Conclusion: ICH associated with HELLP syndrome when managed aggressively can have meaningful neurological recovery.
