A Case report of Spontaneous Gallbladder Perforation in Durrës Hospital
By, Ismet NIKA, MD, Dr. Sc.
Gallbladder perforation occurs very rarely. The most frequent causes of this complication are: acute calculous gangrenous cholecystitis, acalculous cholecystitis, but very rarely, perforation of the gallbladder may occur without obvious clinical and radiological signs of perforation of the gallbladder. Here I am describing the case of a 76-Year-old woman. The patient was presented to the Emergency Department of Durres regional hospital with the diagnosis: Acute generalized abdomen. The etiological diagnosis was established during the surgical intervention. This clinical case is rare, but it shows that this diagnosis should be taken into consideration by
surgeons, in elderly patients who present acute generalized abdomen with unclear etiology in the preoperative period.
