Jaundice affects a small percentage (1 - 4 per 1000) of pregnant women worldwide. Jaundice in pregnancy carries adverse outcomes for both the fetus and the mother. It accounts for 60% perinatal and 14% of maternal deaths. Jaundice in pregnancy carries a grave prognosis for both the mother and the fetus, and is responsible for 10% of maternal deaths. Liver disease in pregnancy is an important medical disorder seen more often in developing countries than in developed ones. Jaundice and pregnancy is a deadly combination resulting in a very high perinatal as well as maternal morbidity and mortality, and requires an early diagnosis and careful management. The aim of this study is to identify the various etiologies and distribution of jaundice with reference to age, parity and trimesters and also to determine the fetomaternal outcome among the pregnant women affected by jaundice treated at a, TERTIARY CARE CENTRE.
