Abstract
With the advent of computed tomography scans, trauma surgeons can easily detect intestinal perforations. However, the signs and scans remain non-definitive in some cases. Here, we present two cases of near-missed intestinal perforation: one case was clearly suspected of intestinal perforation, whereas the other was not so apparent. One should consider the possibility of occult intestinal injury for the abdominal trauma.
