AY Kshirsagar, GOP Vasisth, MD Ahire, RK Kanojiya, SR Sulhyan

Abstract


Gastric perforation in neonates is a rare, serious and life-threatening problem. The precise aetiology is obscure in most cases. By virtue of its high mortality rate, it requires prompt recognition and surgical intervention. We report three cases of neonatal gastric perforation managed by early resuscitation and primary repair.
