Abstract

Spontaneous pneumoperitoneum is infrequently encountered as a radiographic finding in association with a perforated appendicitis. This may lead to diagnostic errors, of which every radiologist and surgion should be aware. We report a case of perforated appendicitis associated with free intraperitoneal gas.
