Özet

Objective: Pneumoperitoneum often occurs following a visceral perforation, often seen with peritonitis, and requires urgent surgical intervention. Non-surgical spontaneous pneumoperitoneum (not associated with organ perforation) is a rare condition caused by intrathoracic, intraabdominal, gynecologic, iatrogenic, and other causes, and may be treated conservatively. Spontaneous idiopathic pneumoperitoneum is not caused by visceral perforation, the cause may be extra-abdominal origin and sometimes cannot be determined.
