CLINICAL SUMMARY: Hyperemesis gravidarum 4-day inpatient stay

A 34-year-old patient who was 13 weeks pregnant was admitted to the hospital recently with hyperemesis gravidarum with electrolyte imbalances. The patient had experienced several days of nausea and emesis; she also had a low-grade fever of 100.5 degrees with a white blood cell count of 20k and bicarb of 17. An abdominal MRI showed no appendicitis; urinalysis noted epithelial cells, moderate bacteria, trace protein and ketones. Treating physicians began ceftriaxone for asymptomatic bacteriuria. The patient experienced sudden onset back and pelvis pain with unclear etiology. She was started on morphine. A retroperitoneal ultrasound showed mild right renal fullness. Physicians consulted urology concerned for obstructing nephrolithiasis in the setting of the pregnancy. Urology concluded the patient could have recently passed a stone, but no current stone required management.

The patient’s electrolytes stabilized during the four-day stay and outpatient IV fluids were arranged for given the ongoing hyperemesis gravidarum. There was no urine culture growth, therefore antibiotics were stopped at discharge. The patient had a close obstetrics follow-up post discharge.
