As discussed in Chapter 17, in 1856 Virchow37 described characteristic lesions commonly found with fatal cases of eclampsia to be regions of periportal hemorrhage in the liver periphery. In their autopsy studies, Sheehan and Lynch38 described that some hepatic infarction accompanied hemorrhage in almost 50% of eclamptic women. Reports of elevated serum hepatic transaminase levels began to surface in the late 1950s, and over the next 20 years it became appreciated that these changes were also seen with severe preeclampsia and they usually paralleled severity of disease.
