Abstract

Abdominal pain is a major complaint at the paediatric emergency department. Intestinal perforation is rare, and it is usually caused by other intestinal diseases or appears in patients with risk factors. We present a case of spontaneous intestinal perforation in a completely healthy patient. The present case is a reminder that spontaneous intestinal perforation can occur in healthy people without any underlying diseases or other risk factors.
