Peritonitis Following Pre-Pyloric Ulcer Perforation: a Case Report

Peritonitis due to peptic ulcer perforation is a surgical emergency with a high risk of mortality and morbidity. A case was presented here, that is a 19-year-old man who underwent an emergency laparotomy for peritonitis caused by perforation of peptic ulcer without risk factor for PUD. The ulcer was located on the pre-pyloric region, close to the lesser curvature. This case report highlights the importance of maintaining a high clinical suspicion of a perforated peptic ulcer in patients presenting with an acute abdomen without risk factor for peptic ulcer.
