Budd–Chiari syndrome is a rare liver disorder in which there is obstruction of hepatic veins causing liver cirrhosis and fulminant hepatic failure. It is a non-specific liver disorder of pregnancy, if it occurs in pregnancy, it should be managed by a multidisciplinary team approach involving an obstetrician, gastroenterologist, and interventional radiologist.
