Abstract

Authors report a clinical case of recurrent intestinal perforation in whom the diagnostic assessment was particularly tricky and required the global evaluation of clinical and laboratory data, accurate diagnostic imaging, histopathological findings and the response to therapy. All this diagnostic and therapeutical approach allowed Authors to get to the correct diagnosis and proper treatment.
