Dr. N Tsonev, D Notev, D Gashkova, D Andreeva, M Stefanova

Intrahepatic (obstetric) cholestasis of pregnacy (ICP) is a unique hepatobiliary condition that manifests itself with itching, jaundice, an increase in the serum concentration of bile acids and poses a risk of complications for both the mother and the baby.
