Peptic ulcer disease is a rare cause of rapidly progressing anaemia in pregnancy, especially during the second trimester of pregnancy. Making a definitive diagnosis in this group of patients is usually very tasking, especially when the common causes of anemia in pregnancy such as Malaria, Sickle Cell Disease, Upper respiratory tract infection, nutritional anemia, e.g., iron and folate deficiency anemia and ruptured ectopic gestation are excluded. We present a rare cause of rapidly progressing mid-trimester severe anemia in pregnancy secondary to peptic ulcer disease in pregnancy, along with the diagnostic challenges, multidisciplinary management, literature review, and the follow-up care.
