- Colecystitis
- Apendicitis
- hepatitis
- Hepatic Capsule Inflamation




  #2

Cholecystitis


  #3

I think is a good choice but what about Fitz Hugh Curtis, it curse with the hepatic capsule inflmation and diaphragm irrotation, Cholecyititis is a very rare entity in pregnants


  #4

i think cholecystitis is not rare during pregnancy...there is tendency to cholecystitis and cholelitiasis because of hormonal changes


  #5

can't appendicitis in pregnancy have an atypical presentation...?but then i suppose she would have other signs and symptoms...fever,tachycardia,etc.
Comments? :?:


  #6

The answer is cholecystitis.


  #7

Cholecystitis,fitz-hugh-curtis is a disorder that is caused by gonorhae...
if u think of mechanizm of cholecystitis,estrogen is one of them,so estrogen level raises in pregnancy....


  #8

  #9

COLECYSTITIS ALONG WILL NOT GIVE TO THIS PATIENT MILD ICTERIC ON PE


  #10
