Description
We report a case of laparoscopic cholecystectomy for a woman with symptomatic cholecystitis in the 20th week of pregnancy. A 26 year old pregnant woman visited our hospital with sudden abdominal pain on the 15th week of pregnancy. She received a proton pomp inhibitor for suspecting acute gastritis. She visited our hospital again with the same complaint on the 19th week of pregnancy. With a diagnosis of symptomatic cholecystitis, she was referred to the department of Gastroenterology at our hospital.
Her symptoms recovered following fasting and resting once. However, laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed because of the recurrence of symptoms at the 20th week of pregnancy. The postoperative courses of both mother and fetus were well. She was discharged on the 4th postoperative day. She delivered a bouncing baby on the 37th week 4 day at natural childbirth.
