Typhoid fever is a community illness that is more intensive in economically developing nations, due to indigent and overpopulation, with absence of potable water and water hygiene. The most threatening complexity of typhoid fever is intestinal perforation, which involves prompt hospital care, detection and operative treatment in order to decrease morbidity rate and prevent fatality. Intestinal perforation due to salmonella continues to be the most prevailing reason for executing emergency surgeries, regardless of various measures such as potable water and garbage disposal. We presently describe a manifestation of multiple intestinal perforations (7) in the Ileum and Cecum in a 35 year old male patient. The significance of precise detection and relevant pre and post-operative care of patients who had been presented with the indication of intestinal perforation has been accentuated in this case report.
