Acute Acalculous cholecystitis (AAC) is a potentially fatal gallbladder infection occurring in severely ill patients. Combining it with other serious conditions such as advanced forms of SARS-COV infection19 will worsen the prognosis of these patients. Difficulties in the diagnosis of AAC due to the infectious syndrome overwhelmed by the SARS-COV19-related severe inflammatory syndrome are often encountered. The various stages of medical and surgical management in the intensive care unit and operating room will be impacted by the COVID19 context with the difficulty of respiratory and hemodynamic management of these patients and the precautions to be taken to minimize transmission of the infection.
The authors propose this rare clinical case to illustrate the data in the literature for the etiopathogenic understanding of AAC and its management in the context of C0VID 19.
