Zieve's syndrome (ZS) is a triad of hemolytic anemia, cholestatic jaundice and hyperlipidemia that presents in the setting of alcohol abuse and liver disease. ZS is not well known and remains underdiagnosed. We present a case of ZS in a 38-year-old female with a history of chronic alcohol abuse and pancreatitis to raise awareness of ZS. It is important for ZS to be recognized promptly to avoid unnecessary and possibly harmful interventions.
