A liver disorder of pregnancy. It presents during the second or, more commonly, the third trimester of pregnancy with intense pruritus which becomes more severe with advancing gestation and cholestasis. It causes fetal distress, spontaneous premature delivery and intrauterine death. Patients have spontaneous and progressive disappearance of cholestasis after delivery. Cholestasis results from abnormal biliary transport from the liver into the small intestine.
