Abstract

Two patients with spontaneous rectoisigmoid or rectal rupture are reported. These patients had peritonitis and they underwent sigmoid loop colostomies. A common aetiological factor was chronic constipation. It is important to recognize the condition at an early stage because of its significant mortality and possible excellent results from surgery.
