A 73-year old woman was operated on with diffuse peritonitis and multiple abscesses throughout the mesentery which were drained. After the operation the patient could not recover. After an indicative computerized tomography the patient was re-explored. Perforation of the ileum and gastric perforation at the pylorus were found. There was no history of underline disease. The double perforation of the GI tract was surgically managed but the patientÃ¢Â€Â™s course was fatal.
