Abstract Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP), the most common medical condition of pregnancy affects up to 80% of all pregnancies to some extent, and hyperemesis gravidarum does less than 1% of pregnant women. When hyperemesis gravidarum induces diaphragmatic tear, diagnosis can be missed because of non-specific presentation with abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. We recently encountered a pregnant patient suffering from intractable vomiting at the beginning of the second trimester (the 13(th) week of gestation) with delayed diagnosis of diaphragmatic tearing, considering the maternal diaphragmatic cause as an unusual one of refractory vomiting accompanied by clinically significant progressive epigastric pain, distension and respiratory embarrassment.
