Spontaneous gastric perforation in a neonate presenting with massive hydroperitoneum



Spontaneous gastric perforation in a neonate presenting with massive hydroperitoneum



Pediatric Radiology 35(12): 1212-1214



We report the imaging findings in a case of neonatal spontaneous gastric perforation presenting as massive hydroperitoneum rather than pneumoperitoneum. Plain abdominal radiography showed a diffuse ground-glass opacity with paucity of bowel gas. Subsequent ultrasonography demonstrated numerous echogenic peritoneal fluid collections containing echogenic debris shown at surgery to be due to milk and bile.
