Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Abdominal pain presenting itself during pregnancy may be multifactorial, requiring immediate attention and care. In cases of intractable pain without obstetrical condition, surgical abdominal exploration is widely advised. However, we present a case where a 30-year-old, gravida 1, para 0, female complained of persistent right abdominal pain during her 25th week of pregnancy. Ultrasound revealed a right upper quadrant cystic mass and magnetic resonance imaging was arranged with compatible findings. Final impression of appendiceal abscess was determined. Broad-spectrum antibiotics were administered and the patient was discharged in stable condition after 10 days of conservative treatment. She delivered a healthy baby boy at her 40th week of gestation uneventfully.
