Esophageal perforation secondary to peptic stricture dilatation is a potential serious complication secondary to endoscopic procedures. There is no consensus about the management of esophageal perforation, especially in those secondary to peptic stricture dilatation. Esophageal perforation is a not very frequent high mortality pathology. It is of interest to present the multidisciplinary and timely management of a patient with esophageal perforation secondary to peptic stricture dilatation in a general hospital in Lima.
