Author(s): Dr. Honeypalsinh H Maharaul, Dr. Pavankumar Tungla and Dr. Ketul Shah
Background: Isolated jejunal perforation caused by blunt abdominal trauma is uncommon and most often seen after motor vehicle accidents. We present 3 cases of “blowout” perforation of the jejunum who were admitted to Dhiraj hospital with intense abdominal pain following a blunt abdominal trauma.
Conclusion: Although diagnosis of traumatic jejunal perforation is challenging a high index of clinical suspicion with physical examinations and the available appropriate imaging modalities we can arrive at diagnosis.
