Although the laboratory thresholds used to define HELLP syndrome are not unanimous, Sibai proposed the following definition in order to be able to combine and compare the various studies in the literature: hemolysis defined as at least two of the following: 1) lactate dehydrogenase >600 IU/L; 2) presence of schistocytes or; 3) total bilirubinemia >12 mg/L.
In the present case, the results of laboratory tests revealed neutrophilic leukocytosis, moderate anemia, and bilirubinemia. Anemia and leukocytosis with neutrophilia in our case were similar with those previously reported (3, 9), and those alterations could be related to secondary necrosis and inflammation in the spleen, lymph nodes, liver, and lungs because of meronts observed in many tissues, such as the skeletal muscle, myocardium, lung, liver, pancreas, bone marrow, and lymph node (3, 9).
Among the five patients who experienced a temporary ALT increase, four experienced a temporary AST increase; one patient presented with direct bilirubinemia (one-fold), and the levels returned to normal after 3 days.
Furthermore, by posttreatment week 53, one of these patients developed bilirubinemia and symptomatic HBV infection (malaise, anorexia, sclera jaundice, and nausea), which resolved after treatment with entecavir.
Newborns with direct bilirubinemia, systemic disease, phototherapy requirement in the first 72 hours of life, congenital anomalies, respiratory distress, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency and clinical and confirmed sepsis were not included in the study.
Laboratory examination showed mild anemia, agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia, bilirubinemia, elevation of aminotransferase, hypertriglyceridemia, hypofibrinogenemia, and elevated ferritin.
The nursing algorithm and the hyper bilirubinemia risk factor tool assisted nurses in determining the need to obtain a bilirubin before the day of discharge.
The patient's complete metabolic panel was significant for mild hypokalemia (potassium 3.1 mmol/L, reference interval 3.5-5.2 mmol/L), hypophosphatemia (phosphorous 0.7 mg/dL, reference interval 2.3-4.3 mg/dL), slightly increased aspartate aminotransferase (60 U/L, reference interval 10-37 U/L), and indirect bilirubinemia (3.7 mg/ dL, reference interval 0.3-1.2 mg/dL).
Despite the extreme general status of our intubated patient requiring triple vasopressor therapy, at total bilirubinemia of 54 mg/dL, 24 hours of hemadsorption deemed to be successful.
Our patient had coagulopathy with bilirubinemia, elevated transaminases, and thrombocytopenia but was not encephalopathic and thus not by definition in fulminant liver failure.
To be used to its full potential, it is necessary that the total bilirubinemia is up to 1.5 times above the normal value [11].
Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) Results in Nonheparinized Samples With Bilirubinemia and Elevated Free Hemoglobin (Hb) aPTT, Median (Interquartile Range), s P Value Bilirubin Baseline 29.3 (27.5-29.5) .01 6 mg/dL 31.1 (28-32.5) 12 mg/dL 32.8 (29.1-34.9) Free Hb Baseline 29.8 (28.1-31.7) .003 100 mg/dL 29.4 (27.9-30.7) 200 mg/dL 29.1 (27.6-30.3)
