PMID:  2656427     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two patients with pneumoperitoneum are reported; in both cases, the cause was severe infection of the upper genital tract. Investigation led to the finding of an underlying endometrial carcinoma. Literature review of the etiology of pneumoperitoneum, nature of the usual infecting organisms, and therapeutic principles are presented. Endometrial carcinoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of infectious pneumoperitoneum, especially where patient risk factors are present.
