Elevated Liver Enzymes in Pregnancy


A 32-year-old female, G1P0, 32 weeks pregnant, with diet-controlled gestational diabetes and a history of Crohn’s disease was admitted to the hospital with elevated serum transaminases, and for the previous 2 weeks, she had nausea and vomiting. For Crohn’s disease, she had required several bowel resections and placement of an ileostomy, but at the time of presentation, she was not on immunosuppressive therapy. Several days before the hospital admission, she developed a diffuse follicular-appearing pruritic rash that she attributed to a new soap she used in her bath.
