Abstract

Nausea and vomiting manifest in more than 50 of pregnancies; in case of severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, or hyperemesis gravidarum, other diagnoses should be considered. This case report details a 34-year-old pregnant woman with diabetes whose primary symptom was nausea and vomiting; she presented with mild abdominal pain without abdominal tenderness. After hospital admission, she was treated as a case of hyperemesis. Sonography revealed acalculous cholecystitis, necessitating laparoscopic cholecystectomy that led to resolution of her condition. As hyperemesis is a diagnosis always arrived at by ruling out other possibilities, a complete physical examination should be performed and other patient symptoms must be considered in pregnant women with this disorder.
