Özet

Adult-onset Still's disease is a rare systemic inflammatory disease, which is characterized by varying degrees of liver involvement. Herein we present a rare case of pregnancy onset adult onset Still's disease with severe acute liver disease which worsened after labor. The patient was successfully managed with medical treatment preventing acute liver failure, and is currently in remission from adult onset Still's disease with liver tests that have returned to normal.
