DOI : 10.5152/dcbybd.2018.1683 Pregnancy-induced hypertensive complications (preeclampsia, eclampsia, and HELLP syndrome) contribute to a significant public health threat worldwide. HELLP syndrome is a life-threatening condition, usually seen in the last trimester in pregnant women. Elevation of liver enzymes, anemia due to hemolysis, and decrease in platelet count are the diagnostic triad. HELLP syndrome is especially associated with intracranial hemorrhage, which may increase mortality. This report presents successful treatment of a complicated patient with HELLP syndrome and intracranial hemorrhage. Keywords : HELLP syndrome, subarachnoid hemorrhage, intracranial hemorrhage, renal failure
