Abstract
A case of multiple spontaneous gastric perforations in the premature newborn was experienced at the Han II hospital. The diagnosis was suspected by sudden abdominal distension and was estabilished by demonstration of free air in the peritoneal cavity in the plain abdominal X-ray film. The patient expired after 2 hours of abdominal distension on the first day of life. The diagnosis was confirmed by autopsy. A brief review is made in addition to our experience.
Key Words: Multiple spontaceous gastric perforation, Premature newborn
