Malik has documented complication of anicteric hepatitis, bone marrow suppression, paralytic ileus, myocarditis, psychosis, cholecystitis, osteomyelitis, peritonitis, pneumonia, hemolysis, and syndrome of inappropriate release of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) in order of frequency.7 A study done by Alshosk and Alahmadi on complication of enteric fever showed that maximum cases were with abdominal complications (12.4%).17
At this stage, the possibility of either hyperemesis gravidarum or anicteric hepatitis was very low and we still inferred that abnormal structure of the intestinal tract or bowel obstruction existed even if the MRI and UGIE result did not support this diagnosis.
