You’re looking at an interactive case study from Prognosis: Your Diagnosis (one of four distinct learning formats available in Clinical Odyssey). Try it out, and have fun improving your clinical skills.
A 27 year old primipara presents at 12 weeks of gestation with recurrent, severe nausea and vomiting. She is also lethargic and weak.
She was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum two weeks ago, which was managed with IV fluids and anti-emetics. No underlying medical disorders were detected.
An ultrasound scan at that time showed a single live intrauterine gestation of 10 weeks. A full blood count is found to be normal.
