Abstract

The syndrome of haemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet count (HELLP syndrome) is a severe form of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia associated with poor maternal and neonatal outcome. We report here the case of an infant born to a mother with HELLP syndrome. The infant was initially diagnosed as having nephrotic syndrome but after a follow-up period of 25 days proteinuria and oedema had disappeared. Conclusion: to our knowledge, transient proteinuria with maternal HELLP syndrome has not been previously described in the literature.
