This is a case report of a 24-year-old woman at pregnancy week 30, who presented with abdominal pain, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, intermittent headaches, and hyperreflexia. Haemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelets (HELLP) syndrome was suspected due to blood tests showing low haemoglobin- and thrombocyte levels, and elevated lactate dehydrogenase level. The baby was delivered by acute caesarean section shortly after hospitalization. After delivery, the patient's condition did not improve. Additional testing showed folic acid deficiency, probably contributing to the anaemia. Further anamnesis showed, that the patient had untreated coeliac disease, contributing to folic acid deficiency.
