Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is characterized by systemic inflammatory response syndrome and vasculopathy. SARS-CoV-2 associated mortality ranges from 2% to 6%. Liver dysfunction was observed in 14%-53% of COVID-19 cases, especially in moderate severe cases. However, no cases of spontaneous hepatic rupture in pregnant women with SARS-CoV-2 have been reported.
