Abstract

Gastric perforation in neonates is an uncommon condition. A four-day-male neonate was referred with respiratory distress, abdominal distention, right scrotal swelling and extensive emphysema of the abdominal wall. Abdominal X-ray findings showed bilateral sub-diaphragmatic free air, right scrotal pneumatocele and subcutaneous emphysema of the abdominal wall. During the operation, pre-pyloric perforation was determined. Primary repair by single layer suture was performed and postoperative period was uneventful.
