We reported a fourty two days old, previously healthy boy following spontaneous perforation of the descending and sigmoid colon. The patient presented with progressive abdominal distention and a swollen scrotum that lead to the suspicion of strangulated inguinal hernia. Next plain abdominal radiographs showed free intraperitoneal gas and final diagnosis was made by exploratory laparatomy, that revealed perforation in the descending and sigmoid colon.
