Hyperemesis gravidarum occurs in 0.3% to 2% of pregnant women, although populations with significantly higher rates have been reported. In clinical practice, hyperemesis gravidarum is identified by otherwise unexplained intractable vomiting and dehydration. This article discusses the causes, presentation, diagnosis, and management of hyperemesis gravidarum.
