A Case of Sealed Off Gastro-Intestinal Perforation
Dr. Purohit Naresh Kumar | Dr. Jatin G Bhatt 
Abstract: Gastro-intestinal Perforation usually present as an acute abdomen. The patient will be in obvious distress, and the abdominal examination shows peritoneal signs. Usually, marked involuntary guarding and rebound tenderness is evoked by a gentle examination and is usually diagnosed by free air on plain radiography. However, a sealed-off gastro-intestinal perforation is very difficult to detect because of the vague symptoms and non-specific radiologic signs. A sealed off perforation is expected to have better prognosis compared with free perforation. In such cases, surgery can be avoided if patient is doing well. We report a 28-year-old male patient with sealed off gastro-intestinal perforation, managed conservatively.
