Dr Sachin S. Balwantkar, Dr Shraiya Tiwari, Dr. Advait A. Vaidya

Abstract


Gall Bladder perforation is a rare but life threatening complication of
acute cholecystitis.GB perforation poses a diagnostic challenge for the
surgeon as it’s signs and symp-toms do not differ significantly from
that of generalized peritonitis and imaging studies are in-sensitive in
picking up GB perforation. This delay in diagnosis and treatment leads
to increased morbidity and mortality associated with this condition.
