During pregnancy, hepatocellular adenoma HCA may grow, which increases the risk of rupture. In this case report, a 34-year-old woman at gestational age 34+ weeks was admitted to hospital with abdominal pain, hypovolaemia and intrauterine foetal death from a ruptured hepatocellular adenoma. It was successfully managed with trans-arterial embolisation and caesarean section, followed by laparoscopic liver resection four weeks later. Spontaneous liver rupture during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of maternal and foetal mortality, and appropriate interventional radiology and surgical measures are essential for successful treatment.
