Gastric perforation in a two-year-old girl

Gastric perforation is a life-threatening condition and is rarely seen in children. In this case report a two-year-old girl with a two-day history of fever and severe abdominal pain was evaluated in an emergency department. When she was four months old, she had surgery for malrotation. On examination the abdomen was distended, and her condition deteriorated rapidly with signs of shock.
