Abstract Improving the information delivered to pregnant women with adjustable gastric banding is desirable. Indeed, we report a case of peritonitis on gastric banding due to Klebsiella pneumoniae complicated with fetal death. Then, we discuss the specific risks of infection on the gastric band during pregnancy. Although, according to the literature, prophylactic fluid removal from the band in early pregnancy is not recommended, data about complications in pregnancy due to gastric banding are limited.
