Hiatal Hernia with Gastric Perforation


Hiatal Hernia with Gastric Perforation



Cureus 13(7): E16572



ISSN/ISBN: 2168-8184

PMID: 34434673

A 63-year-old male with a history of hiatal hernia presented with one day of hematemesis and acute peritonitis. Computed tomographic imaging revealed perigastric pneumoperitoneum concerning perforated viscus. Exploratory laparotomy revealed a Type III hiatal hernia with a perforated posterior gastric ulcer, which was reduced and repaired. This report describes a case of acute abdomen secondary to hiatal hernia, a rare presentation of hiatal hernia, along with its surgical management and postoperative care.
