Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet (HELLP) syndrome is a pregnancy-specific disease that affects many systems of the body. Its etiopathogenesis has not been fully elucidated. HELLP syndrome is characterized by hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelet counts. It has a prevalence of 0.2%-0.8% in pregnant women. This study aimed to compare periodontal status as well as interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-37 levels in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) of healthy pregnant women and pregnant women with HELLP syndrome.
