Boerhaave's syndrome is oesophageal rupture as a result of forceful vomiting or retching against a closed cricopharyngeus. We report the case of an 81-year-old man with oesophageal rupture secondary to volvulus of an intrathoracic stomach who underwent laparotomy with a repair of the oesophageal perforation and intrathoracic stomach, making a good recovery. This case demonstrates another life-threatening complication of an intrathoracic stomach and highlights the importance of an early diagnosis and the advantages of using a transabdominal approach in this situation.
