Abstract
Spontaneous perforation of the uterus and subsequent generalized peritonitis is an extremely rare complication of pyometra. Although generalized peritonitis secondary to perforated pyometra is rare in patients with an acute abdomen, this condition should be considered in the differential diagnosis. We report a case of a spontaneous uterine perforation of a pyometra in a patient with cervical cancer with brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Uterine cervical cancer, Peritonitis, Uterine perforation
