Abstract

Acute Acalculous Cholecystitis is defined as an acute necrotizing inflammatory disease of the gallbladder without cholelithiasis. We report a case of 34 – year –old woman who has been diagnosed with Systemic lupus erythematosus three years ago, At 37 weeks she visited emergency department in labour with fever, an infection was suspected and antibiotics were administered, and until the second day of hospitalization that we made the diagnostic of the Acute Acalculous Cholecystitis, the curative treatment was the cholecystectomy.

The fever in the peripartum is frequently related to an infection, but in many times we should be vigilant to not to pass behind other causes, especially for women who have Systemic lupus erythematosus.

Keywords: Acute acalculous cholecystitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, fever, peripartum
