Abstract

The aim of this review was to present recent information about the fetal condition in cases of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy. A relatively mild course of maternal disease does not predict fetal well-being accurately. Increased risk of sudden intrauterine death was emphasized, implicating the need for more stringent obstetric monitoring of fetal condition in this disorder. A pathogenetic mechanism leading to sudden deterioration of fetal wellbeing was proposed and discussed. Current recommendations regarding medical management of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy were also presented.
