Perforated gastric ulcer (PGU) is a relatively common cause of peritonitis in elderly on long-term NSAIDS. Treatment algorithm however differs from center to center on managing this condition. Plenty of recommendations available on the literature at the moment to guide young surgeons in how to best manage patient in such situations. We are sharing our experience in managing case of a 76-years-old lady with perforated gastric ulcer who presented in septic shock during COVID-19 pandemic. We aim to highlight the process in decision making on timing of the surgical exploration and intervention and the factors that guide clinicians on the decision making.
