  2. Momah, T., Patel, K. Acute cholecystitis and diverticular abscess patient with covid-19 infection. West African Journal of Medicine. 2022;39(9):982-984.

    This is a case of a 53-year-old African American woman with newly diagnosed concomitant acute cholecystitis, diverticulitis, and SARS-COV-2 infection. She underwent treatment for COVID-19 with antibiotics and supportive treatment, and on day 32 after initial symptoms presented, she had an elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Our patient was one of the first cases to present with acute cholecystitis and diverticulitis complicated by COVID-19, and serves as a template for surgical management of non-emergent abdominal pathologies in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
