Abstract: Rupture of the small intestine by blunt abdominal trauma is a rare phenomenon and is most often secondary to violent contusions.The diagnosis is not easy but should be suspected in the face of intense abdominal pain and peritoneal signs (defense evolving towards contracture), after a high-energy trauma.The authors report two cases of jejunal rupture consecutive to road traffic accidents diagnosed late and followed up at university clinics in Lubumbashi.
