Abstract

A study of 72 cases with typhoid perforation is presented. All the cases included in the study had more than 48hrs peritonitis with highly inflamed gut and presented late with septic shock. They were treated with exteriorization of the perforation as ileostomy. Postoperative recovery was satisfactory with minimal complications and very few mortalities. The ileostomy was closed 2 months later in all the cases.
