SPONTANEOUS PERFORATION OF THE SIGMOID IN CHRONIC RENAL FAILURE

Spontaneous perforation of the sigmoid was found in association with chronic renal failure. A review of the literature disclosed that the spontaneous perforation is a rare occurrence. Its association with renal failure seems to be furthermore rare, but recently it is gaining a clinical attention. The constipation is a common complication in patients with chronic renal failure on hemodialysis. Those previously reported cases and ours suggest that the longstanding constipation is somehow responsible for the perforation of the colon.
