Abstract

It is rare for pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis to give rise to abdominal pain. We report a patient with signs and symptoms of a perforated viscous in whom abdominal exploration was negative, but in whom biopsy of various intraabdominal cystic structures revealed only pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis.
